It's Finished!

I've been working on a quilt for my friend the last month or so. It's a baby shower gift and I've been waiting to share pictures so I didn't ruin the surprise. Not showing the pictures was really hard, but now I can show you!

The quilt was finished Wednesday morning and sent UPS 2-Day Air a few hours later.

It was a big hit!



In case you couldn't tell by the quilt... she is having a BOY!

I used the "Yellow Brick Road" pattern for this quilt. Either the instructions weren't clear or I just didn't understand them... I messed up more than once! Luckily I was able to make do with the fabrics I had. I don't have a lot left, but I already have ideas for the scraps ;-)

Weee! Do you like it?

P.S. Big thanks to my mother, the quilting master. This quilt simply wouldn't have happened with out her amazing help!

    What would we do without our mom's help? She helped me with my quilt also.
