Lilly's Baby Quilt

There is another population explosion in my world
this spring and the first baby quilt needed is for 
Lilly, who will be born in April.
A shower for Lilly's mom is in less than two weeks
and the baby quilt is finished!

When I went shopping for the binding fabric,
I figured I'd get something pink
and continue with the soft, feminine theme.

Instead, I found this bright green gingham and love it!


I had fun quilting this baby quilt,
even though my seam ripper was needed
a fair amount. 


 Below are two photos taken in a hotel
that are as close to the true colors as I could get.

While these are not my typical colors for quilts,
I am really pleased with the finish.


A label needs to be made and stitched in place
and then this little quilt is finished.

I'm linking to Design Wall Monday today.

Happy Quilting!
