Baby quilt almost done

Hi all! I have had a productive day, if not on the housekeeping front. I really needed to complete this little baby quilt for a co-worker...it seems at any one time, several of the girls are expecting, and the one that is due soonest is a little boy. Hope this is OK!I quilted it myself on my little Brother machine, and still need to hand-stitch the binding. The girl I am making it for wanted pastel blues...so this is what she got! All the pastel blues I own! The fabric is interesting; it was given to me as some samplers from the fabric warehouses. We have fabric warehouses in the metroplex, and they are simply dangerous to go in to...dangerous for the pocketbook that is!!I think that when this little quilt is washed and dried, it will scrunch up and be fine for a baby boy.

This is my package, minus bows, to go to my Secret Santa Swap partner! I hope she loves it as much as I do...
I went to vote very early this am. We use old fashioned paper ballots. Hope you all got the chance to go too!! I got sheets changed, mirrors and microwave polished, laundry done...will work on dusting, that is my least favorite.
Hope you all have had a most wonderful day!!

I am sure she will love the quilt! You did a terrific job. I did many of the things that you did today too. So I guess I had a productive day too!

It will keep baby all warm and snuggily...Mother will be pleased too.

Sounds like you have been busy with the housework among all the other things going on in your world.

Looks like a perfect baby boy quilt *s*
We use paper ballots now, too. Feels more like a test as I fill in the bubbles . . . I miss those punch ballots *s*

I think your co-worker's baby boy is a very lucky little man. I'm sure his mom will love your choice of blues;)

The new little guy will be very lucky to arrive in this quilted world! Your quilt is perfect!

Hope you're all finished with housework and can enjoy the finer things in life!

Sweet quilt-- Bet Mom wants to save it as much as babyboy wants to use it!! Classic Pattern is a keeper.
