{Post 1,490} Two Big Finishes

Here is the finished baby quilt.  It measures 40" square.  I love the way it turned out.  The cream is muslin.  The quiltiness right out of the dryer is amazing!!  The quilt pattern is from Christina Cameli.  I forget the name of the exact design.  It quilted up so quickly.

My second really big finish is a pattern from an old American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  I think it was called Pick & Choose in the mag.  It measures about 68" x 85".  Don't remember exactly.

This is a gift for my daughter that will be married on September 26.

This quilting pattern was found on YouTube by the same woman as above.  I love a good free-motion all-over quilting design.

{Post 1,489} Expendable Labor Coach

Expendable labor coach was one of the hats I wore this weekend.  I was also hostess to 15, B & B manager, and a few other things!

One of my dear friends that is my daughters' age asked me to come with her when she delivered her baby.  Well, labor started this morning at 1:15 AM.  At 8:35 AM, little Everett was happily received by his ecstatic parents.  He is 3 minutes old in the picture.  I waited until he was prettied up.

Much relief and joy right here.
