The Baby Quilt is Done!

My first finish for September. Remember that Baby Quilt my husband wanted me to make for one of his employees who had a baby? I hoped to get it done a couple of weeks ago. But things always take me longer than planned. In this case two times longer, which is about par for the course. I finally sewed the binding down last night. I think I will call it,'Pastel Baby'.
I think it was the back that took so long. I thought I had a piece of fabric that would have been perfect for the backing. It's the blue one with the little bears and stars on it. When I pulled it out I could only find a couple of large pieces and a lot of scraps. I thought I had a lot more of it. I have a feeling that the rest of this fabric is hiding somewhere in my sewing room. It has all of the colours that I used in the top, so I just pieced some of the leftovers from the top and did some back art. I hope the baby likes it.

I'm sure the baby will love both sides. It's really cute. I know what you mean about fabric hiding. I had a piece of blue with animals and I kept looking and couldn't find it but found the same print in another color in my collection so I used it. 2 weeks later the other piece showed up.

Great job on the baby quilt Hetty. I know exactly what you mean about things taking longer than planned. I keep telling myself that whatever I estimate for a quilt I need to add at least 50% more time. LOL.

Double your pleasure, double your fun... Even if the little one never notices, the momma and everyone else that sees it will notice. And you still have the fabric with the stars and bears on it to use on another quilt... when you find it.
