Done and Gifted - First Finish for 2012

It's been done for a while, but it finally went to it's new owner.  Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the full quilt due to space restrictions but trust me that it turned out quite cute on the whole.
 The little boy I made this for just turned 3 months old...how embarrassing, but oh well, better late than never right?
 After it was all put together I questioned my choice of all that cream on the front.  Just from me carting it around to work on it, it had developed dirty spots.  Too late though, I'd already promised it.  I ended up feeling the need to wash it though before gifting and was so glad I did, it crinkled up nicely, hiding any quilting mishaps that may...or may not have occurred.  After I took it out of the dryer I didn't want to give it away I liked it so much. 

 The back, I love this fabric, I was lucky enough to pick this up off the %75off rack at work.  Too cute, and just perfect for a little boy.
So there is my first finished quilt for 2012.  Hope you like.

  1. A finish is a finish, no matter when it's completed. Looks great! Washing and drying is one of my secret fixes. I think it hides all those little mistakes like too big stitches or uneven lines.
