Baby Quilt

Happy Tuesday to you.  Many of you know that one of the nicest things about blogging is the friendships that are formed in blogland.  I am have been so blessed by the richness of the relationships with you all.  One dear friend, Debbie over at http://debsdailydribble.blogspot.com/,  is one such friend.  Debbie daughter is expecting a little boy in the fall and when Debbie first found out, she approached me about making a baby quilt.  Of course, I was thrilled beyond belief to be asked and had a wonderful time picking the fabrics and pattern.  It went in the mail last week and arrived safely in Southern California.  Now, I get to share with you all.  Although this makes it look small, it is a good size baby quilt.

I realize the hand stitching may be too small to see but if you click on the photo it might be visible.  Although I did just a simple design, there is quite a bit of hand quilting.
I think this has been one of my favorite quilts and I'm hoping that Mel loves it and that it brings baby Sam lots of comfort.  Another tidbit is that Debbie was able to find the fabric and make coordinating bedding with it.  I think Debbie and I are true kindred spirits! 
Now, I'm on to a new quilt for a very special person and since she visits here I can't say anymore.  I will post photos once I get it together and it will remain a mystery for the time being.
I hope you had a wonderful fourth, filled with family and fun.  Enjoy your day today.
Hugs, Noreen

    I did a good bit of quilting over the weekend, and my finger is SORE. Any hints or tricks that you've found to avoid overly pricked fingers during hand quilting?
