Finished Churn Dash Baby Quilt

Ta-da!

 Last night I finished up the last few stitches in the binding for this lovely little quilt! And that means my January Lovely Year of Finishes goal is completed too! Hooray!


After many, MANY hours of free motion quilting, this one is ready to go off to its new home.


As I might have mentioned previously, this quilt is for a college friend of my husband's and his wife for their first baby due in March. 

When I finished it my husband asked me if we could keep it or if I could make one exactly the same for him. I told him that I can make him one that's his own size rather than baby sized.



Stats:
Size: 48 inches square
Blocks used: Churn dash
Backing: Giant churn dash with borders
Fabrics: all from my stash -- a mishmash of matching fabrics.
For: Baby K due in March!

Linking up with Finish it up Friday and at A Lovely Year Of Finishes!
