FO! And our family is growing...

I wish it was not raining outside, because I would take this bad ass quilt outside for a real photo shoot. Instead you get it laying on my bed, which is where it will live because this one is all mine!!

And a close up of the free motion quilting done on it yesterday. I took a mental health day from work and worked on this all day and most of the evening to finish it up. Final measurements before washing, 75 x 75, after washing, 71 x 71, which is perfect for me to wrap up in and read a book.
Now, I think I will work on some baby quilts. A few weeks ago we found out that we are going to be grandparents, how awesome is that? Our oldest daughter, Sirena, is expecting, sometime around Thanksgiving. Now I will have a little person to make lots of handmade items for, way cool.

Congrats! Grandbabies ROCK! :) Also beautiful quilt. Glad you've got one for YOU instead of giving them all away. I wish you many happy naps under it.
