It's DONE, DONE, DONE & ,I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!


Yes, I finally finished Nathan's quilt. It was done 3 months to the day after his birthday. Never mind you that the entire top has been sewn together since a week or so after Christmas . . .but you all understand, right? This might be my favorite quilt that I've made so far. For one thing, the "pattern" was uncomplicated, ie. there was no pattern. I just cut some strips of random widths and stitched them up, used some corn blend batting (I know . .corn???), did a decent job of quilting it on my little machine and then did the binding. I think I like it so much because it looks EXACTLY how I envisioned it would when I went shopping for the fabric. I wouldn't say that rarely happens, because it NEVER happens for me. I'm excited for little Nathan to use it and I hope he doesn't spit up on it too much.
