FINALLY, a Quilting Finish!

I've really missed sewing. It's so good to clear my head and thoughts as I watch the mind-numbing repetition of needle up, needle down.



I managed to finish my quiltie for the Doll Quilt Swap 7 today! Woot! I'm crossing my fingers that it will be greatly loved by my partner!

This pretty fabric print on the backing is one of my absolute favorites from Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks line. The color just "grabs" you and I'm really fond of the block-print look of the flowers. I even threw in a little hand-quilting because it's easy to do while watching TV and quiet while my kiddo is napping.

Speaking of Kiddo....Look at the determination during our craft time today! Sometimes he fools me into thinking I'm looking at a tiny replica of my husband :)

Who wouldn't love that! And Titus is too cute, he really does look like he's working hard!

Pretty! Did you do the embroidery by hand or on your machine? My machine has an embroidery function but I've been too chicken to try it out:) Titus is really concentrating! Annabel's idea of coloring is two scribbles and she's done!

It is SO loved!!! I already hung it on my quilt wall and looked at it for a long while, while nursing. Thank you so much for blessing me with your creativity. The effort and care that went in to making this quilt make me so happy and appreciative. Keep up the wonderful work, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
