I pieced and half quilted this little baby quilt about 5 years ago. I really liked the fabric and although there were no babies in my life around that time I thought I'd make it in advance. I should have known myself better. Of course when I was 1/2 way through quilting it somebody asked for a quilt for their girlfriend, or somebody got married, so it got put in the curing pile.
Three babies have been born in my family since this quilt was abandoned but of course I had to make something new and more exciting for each of those quilts. One of the good things about picking up a project you worked on years ago is that you get to see how much your skills have improved. There is one very crooked quilting line in this quilt and I'm choosing to believe I sewed that one 5 years ago, not last month when I picked it up again.
It's a pretty little quilt and I'm happy to have it finished. I'll be adding to Gabriel's collection of quilts. No baby can have too many quilts, I say. I'm linking up to TGIFF hosted this week by Jenn at Quarter Inch From the Edge. Hope to see you there.
