Another Finish

I wanted to get this posted earlier but it has been one of those weeks and certainly one of those day. First to update the computer then the iTouch. My internet is not what it should be and took a total of 6 hours to update the iTunes/iTouch. Glad that is over with!

This is a Moda Bake Shop quilt that I made for a very dear friend of mine who had a new grand-baby arrive in August. I wanted to do something extra special for my friend so I made her daughter the quilt for the new baby. I have sent it out and it was well received. She even sent me a thank you card in the mail. People just don't do that very much anymore and it meant a lot to me. She did send a photo of the baby on the quilt as well. Always nice to see the baby on the quilt.

I loved making this quilt and it was just the one I needed to help me get back into the sewing mood again. I put a vintage sheet on the back of it. The pinks and the green were a perfect match.

Now I am off to relax a bit. I finished a quilt top tonight that I do not like but it turned out alright. Will post about that one after I finish it. I have another top to start first before I sandwich that one.

Have a great weekend.

Sounds like you've been busy!! The quilt turned out so pretty, and I love the vintage sheet on the back, it's the perfect touch. Any kind of personal mail is so rare these days, it makes a card or a note that much more special. Sounds like they loved the quilt! xo

What a beautiful quilt! I love the colors.

ITunes is terrible when it comes to updates. Why do they have to take so long to do??
