F is for Finished!

Very Happy to have finished this quilt - and to have finished it on time!!!  This will be a gift from a really wonderful friend of mine to the daughter (and granddaughter) of another good friend - so really hoping it will be loved.  Lots of work and happy thoughts went into this baby blanket.  And of course, I'm especially happy to work on a girl quilt.  maybe just slightly biased towards girl babies since mine has been such a joy.  although, I know a few boy babies that have charmed me too.  maybe I'll have to pull out some blues and greens for my next project...






had some fun at the laundromat while the quilt was drying
 Finished Quilt is 49" x 54"
the start fabric was from the Target baby registry, a crib sheet from the tiddliwinks sweet safari collection.  added Just Wing It by Momo for Moda Fabrics, Kaffe Fassett spots in fuschia and paperweight in green, Kumari Gardens by Dena Designs for Free Spirit, Urban Circus by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman fabrics, floral birds in the Jenaveve Linen collection by Valori Wells for Free Spirit, Remix by Ann Kelle Designs for Robert Kaufman fabrics, Groove by Caleb Gray for RKaufman, Fun Flower Charmers by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse, Clowning Around Robert Kaufman (according to eQuilter, but seems a strange name for that fabric.  described as "pop art floral fancy", which seems a better name.) (ETA - got some more of that fabric, really is a nice fabric, with selvedge.  It's "Citronella" by Sandra Banava for Robert Kaufman.  See 9/14/11 also.) And...  Just Dandy by Josephine Kimberling for RKaufman, Sunny Daze by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures fabrics.  There's an orangey/tangerine solid from my stash - most likely a Kona, but not sure of the color. 

and now a good excuse to meet up with my friend for dinner.  can't just hand over a quilt - would be rude.  must spend some time with food and drink.  and then perhaps I can make some time for that OTHER friend - the farmer's wife!
