Baby Quilt-DONE!

I finally finished the Baby quilt and I love how it turned out!
It was my first real quilt that I made all by myself! I'll admit, in the middle of doing it, I doubted myself! Ha ha it was getting hard to do and sounded impossible to finish! But with the encouragement from my awesomely awesome and sweet husband, and my determination to get it done, I DID IT!
I did call my sister and Mom for advice quite often, too!
Also, all these fun colors are the "theme" colors for the nursery!
There were a couple of things that made it a little harder like the fact that I chose to use minky fabric for the back. That stuff is SO soft and slippery and HARD to sew. But oh so cuddly and pretty and cute and nice! I'm glad I chose it ,now that the quilt is done and I don't have to sew it anymore! I was scared of the Bias Tape, too! I thought that would be the death of me, for sure! I wanted it to be perfect for our little lady and I think that is why it was so hard for me! It is no where near perfect but it is perfect for her and I LOVE how it turned out! It's so snuggly and CUTE and girly and fun! I can't wait to snuggle her in it!!! Now, on to the next project! I have a whole list!

Steph, that turned out awesome!! Minky really is a pain to sew with and you did a great job. I can't wait to see what the rest of the room looks like.

Super cute Steph, good job. It's fun, right? You are looking really adorable and I loved catching up on your blog. Pretty soon I'll have to give Jenni back and I don't want to!! It's been wonderful having them this Summer. Hope all continues to go well for you.

You are a girl after my own heart! Pick the hardest project you can find first! Just because it's hard doesn't mean you can't do it first! Then all the rest are EEEEzy!
Love the stripes, love the ruffley stuff!
