had the most wonderful time with very good friends this afternoon, sharing in something so special and bonding with friends. I think Kevin (husband) and I were the only ones that didn't recite things back....it was a catholic baptism.
Here's a story of a quilt that should have only taken a few weeks to complete, but ended up taking 10 months . . . I kinda figured I would give it to him for his first birthday, since I didn't make it in time for his birth! lol
The ducks and the backing are all flannel, so I skipped on the batting - which I have learned would have really help with putting the binding on (so my stitches wouldn't go through to the front). It was 45" x 54" finished. The label I had to cheat on due to time, with using Steam A Seam. But it should hold and I will tell the mom just needs to be tacked down from time to time.

Positive is another dear friend is pregnant and she only 3 months along...I should be able to get their quilt done, a lot sooner LOL
I'm off to add borders to my Wave Our Colors.
