Baby Quilt (my FIRST quilt) is COMPLETE!

I am so excited to share my first quilt w/y'all! My good friend (who owns Lone Star House of Quilts) quilted it for me and I just received it back a few days ago. I can hardly believe I actually pieced the quilt and it is done now - just waiting for Little Miss to arrive.

The quilting looks wonderful and I'm thrilled with my first ever totally completed quilt, can you tell? Maybe, just maybe, I'll try my hand at actually doing the quilting on a future quilt, but I didn't want to risk making a huge mess out of the quilt top after all the time I put into it. I'm glad I trusted it to a dear friend who knew what she was doing!

So, without further adieu, here 'tis! (you can click on the pictures to see them larger and actually see the quilting)


here's a closeup of some of the quilting - I asked for hearts :)



All set for Miss Baby!

Girl, you did a great job. I love the colors and how you put it together. And, the quilting is just perfect for the little miss headed your way very soon. You have every right to be 'crowing' about this quilt.

WOW--you did an excellent job--not only with the piecing but the color choice is wonderful! I love the contrasts with the dark fabric and the floral foundational fabric. It is very well done, Secret Sister!!! Good for you! And I am praying that your littlest will come today if she is not here yet!
love,
