Pinwheel Baby Quilt is finished.





I got my white batting last night and basted this quilt as soon as I got home.  Then I started right into the quilting.  I finished it up this morning and then hand stitched the binding to the back this afternoon.

 I so love this quilt.  It feels so soft. I love all the white and how all the colors mix well together.
Did I mention it is soft... so soft.  I keep caressing it.
 


While I was out shopping for batting, I found the perfect stripped fabric for the binding.  I hadn't even been looking for binding fabric,  I figured I would use something I already had in my stash, but as soon as I saw this striped fabric I knew it would be perfect for this quilt.  So I snatched up a yard.  I didn't really need a whole yard for this binding, but the fabric was so nice I went ahead and got extra.  I am sure I will find another use for the rest of it.  


I used a nice soft baby flannel for the back.



Can you tell I love this quilt?  One picture wasn't quite enough.


I can't wait to give it away and have it get snuggled by the new baby.


  The shower is Saturday and it sure feels good to have this quilt done two days before it is needed.  Most of my handmade gifts end up getting finishing the night before or in the wee hours of the morning before the event. But not this time.

This time I have two days till the party.  Hmm, I bet I have time to make a diaper pouch in matching fabrics....
