Completed Quilt

Here is the finished commissioned baby quilt. It ended up being 44" square, which is large for a baby quilt. But, I think it gives room to grow.
I pieced the back, which is a new thing for me. I like the look it gives and that it has a patchwork vibe to it as well.
Here is a close up of the quilting and my fabulous label. I did a meandering stipple throughout. When it's washed, it should have really nice texture.

New Quilt

I got an order yesterday for a baby quilt. I chose these fabrics because they are sweet and soft and are tailor made for baby. I'm doing 9-Patch blocks separated by pink sashing. The border will be the pink fabric with sheep. Check back in a few days for a finished quilt top. This baby is coming in October, so the quilt needs to be done in a few weeks. It will be a very sweet quilt.
