Anna Grace's baby quilt.... done! Well, not quite. It still has to be quilted and I don't know how so I'm going to find someone to do it for me. Sure hope it isn't expensive! The quilt measures 44x37. I did one quilt a few years ago and it could have entered the world's worst quilt contest. I'm really happy this one turned out half way decent. A couple corners didn't miter that well but I couldn't find any decent directions so I did it my way.
I had some bad feelings going on with my daughter and her pregnancy so I had my oldest, Rhonda, call Theresa to see if everything is ok. Anna Grace will be introduced to the world on April 20th! Tree (Theresa's nickname) will have C-section. How how I wish I could see her. Well, I'm sure Anna Grace will be a beautiful baby. Anna will make the 4th for April birthday. Mine is 12th, Theresa is 13th, Theresa's daughter Paige is 17th and now Anna, the 20th. LOL Lots of Aries.
Here is the quilt. Not your typical baby colors but I guess this is the nursery colors.

Your quilt is beautiful. I know someone that takes in quilting but I guess you don't want to send it all the way to Idaho, huh? hehe

Hi Carla,
I think your baby quilt turned out really cute. I know they will be proud to get it. Haven't colors changed since we had little ones.
Your pictures are the clearest I've seen. What kind of camera do you have? The post with the butterfly needs to go in a magazine.
Keep Stitchen'

Carla, I love the quilt and I will be praying that you will get to see Anna Grace. As you know, I do quilting, but I am not sure if you want to ship the top or not. I have customers ship all the time and don't mind doing it if you would like. But I so understand the local aspect of having a quilt done. Good luck and congrats on your granddaughter.
