Finished!!!

I finished George's baby quilt! (wait, that's the baby, you wanted to see the quilt..)

Started May 2008, finished January 2009, thanks to the challenge. I used Ringle & Kerr's Plain Spoken pattern (with more than a few prints because I didn't have many solids) and hand quilted in pearl cotton #8. All the fabric came from my stash, woohoo!


I was worried about how it would come out when I threw it in the washer & dryer-- this is the first quilt done in pearl cotton that i've actually finished. thankfully it came out ok. I still need to re-measure it though and I might have to change the hooks on the wall if it shrank at all. It looked so good on the wall above George's crib, but now that it's actually done i just want to cuddle him with it and use it..
Maybe I'll just hang it up when company comes over...

He is growing by leaps and bounds--he's lost the newborn look, hasn't he? Oh, yes, the quilt--it's great. Love the colors and the simple design. And the quilting! if I ever hand-quilt again, it will be big concentric circles like this.

I just love the circular quilting. It really makes it special!

Congratulation on finishing your first WISP! I think you will get the prize..that quilt is absolutely adorable (uh-um..not as adorable as that cutie on top of it..of course) I LOVE the round hand quilting you did on it!

Awesome! Those circles are great on the Plain Spoken. (My plain spoken has the watery quilting that the authors used.)
