Getting ready for baby


Here is the new baby quilt Joanna helped me put together in just this past week. All I did was go buy the fabric (isn't it the cutest?) and Joanna cut the pieces and sewed them together and quilted it. (She quilted it so beautifully, it has that nice, wrinkled look). She showed me how to finish off the binding yesterday and I stayed up late sewing the purple edge by hand. The fingertips on my right hand are a little sore from being pricked over and over again. It was my first time ever binding up a quilt. It wasn't as hard as I thought, and it took me a little over two hours. So now we have a beautiful, hand-sewn quilt for the baby. I LOVE the stripes, and I love how I've never seen anything like it. Thank you so much, Joanna!
