The late baby quilt
Oh, man, I keep trying to come up with a funny post title and this one just makes it sound like the baby is dead! Anyhoo...
My cousin and his girlfriend had a baby. The baby was about a week late, the quilt is about a month late. What are you going to do, right?
So, Leo, I hope you're not reading this. But since you're all of about 2 weeks old, I doubt you're online yet. Your quilt will be in the mail soon.
I had so much fun quilting this! I'm not really sure what the pattern is called, shells, headbands? Anyway, those combined with some swirls and pebbles.
I also added one big swirl that I accented with pebbles. I also quilted in "eat sleep play" in block letters but couldn't get a decent photo of it.
And there's the back. I had to laugh when I realized the sock monkeys were wearing toques. Pretty appropriate since I took the photos out in the snow/hail. Which just keeps falling! It's a winter wonderland out there! I need to take some photos of my hope valley quilt today, so more snowy shots. Yay!
