My DIL's brother had a baby about two months ago and I've been wanting to make him a quilt. We had invited them over for Thanksgiving so I had a hard, fast deadline for the quilt. I spent a good part of Wednesday quilting and binding so it was ready for Thursday a.m.
I quilted around the giraffe (duh) and then did random straight lines through the rest of the quilt.
The blocks were not perfectly lined up (which is an understatement), but I think the random lines helped cover that up. Overall, I am really happy with it. I was really upset with myself for not re-doing the blocks and making sure they were all lined up ..
The backing was a flannel I had in my stash and I think it worked really well.
Another finish!! (The eighth one this year -- not sure I'll get nine done, but if I push through the Grinch quilt, I might make it. (#9 on my list)).
