I finished up yet another baby quilt today. This one I can claim more credit for, the only help I received was in picking out the fabric (thanks Roberta!). Several weeks ago some friends of ours were 'picked' by a birth mother to adopt her unborn son. Just about two weeks ago the baby boy was born...and a weekend was spent waiting, hoping & praying that the adoption would go through...and it did.
The best way for me to wait in such times is to think up a quilt, I guess. I had seen the batik fabric used in this one at the craft store a few weeks ago, I love it because it has little turtles stamped into it (and I'm very into turtles of late). Roberta helped me figure out which fabrics to use with it and I have to admit I love the combination. And I continue to get better at my machine quilting, even with flannel backing.
