Finished a Baby Quilt

I just love baby quilts.  And I love finishing them even if the baby is six months old.  You're in my heart and mind  just need a little more time to get you your quilt!

This quilt was started last winter (before the baby was born) due to some miscalculations on my part

The borders were made using the scraps from the blocks and a Dear Stella print

I used a flannel bubble print for the backing, I think flannel is great to use on baby quilts - extra snuggly

I quilted a simple grid along the squares, keeping it simple (I used a King Tut variegated thread for the quilting)

This baby is washed and I took it for a test run on the sofa - it works! comfy on the couch, snuggly while watching TV.  I think it will fit the baby and his family well.  I hope they put it to good use.

This is a quilt on my list for the 2013 Finish A Long YAY!

I'm linking up to Fabric Tuesday on QuiltStory where they have an inspiring story about their Uncle Dean you should read.  

Keep Calm and Quilt On

Very cute! No worries that the baby is already six months... I just now finished my own baby's quilt and she'll be seven months old in two days. What's worse is that I actually did the calculations: eight other babies have received a quilt from me in the meantime - most of them younger, one not yet born! Ridiculous...

I like all the animal prints and the flannel backing is a great touch!

This is beautiful Mary! I love the DS elephants and the colours are gorgeous. My son has a quilt with a flannel backing that was made for him when he was a baby and it's his favourite. I'm sure it will be well loved.
