a finish!

Here is a baby quilt I delivered today for my son's teacher and his wife. Their baby girl was born March 1st.




This is a planned bargello from Bonnie's Scrappy Bargello pattern. I have a patriotic one just waiting for border/backing/quilt machine!

close up of quilting. (sorry about the blurry-ness). I just did a loop-de-loop. I hope you can see the close up of the pastel batik. I bought this fabric as least 4 times. I think this is the last of it...dogGONE it!




typical of me..scrappy back. The solids were in the throw away pile at sewing class. I brought them home, washed them to take out the musty smell, and ironed them. They look so good with that batik! I hope they like it. My son's teacher is wonderful with him...he puts up with his very sarcastic wit! PRICELESS!
