I hope you won't mind indulging me. I just couldn't resist one more picture of the baby quilt. It's done, bound, washed, dried and deliciously all crinkly.I couldn't be more pleased that it finished up the way I saw in my mind. I have another baby quilt to make soon. I think I'll do something similar. The Sarah Sporrer book has other pull toy applique patterns, just to change it up a little.
I celebrated the finished quilt with a trip to the quilt shop. I always check the sign just outside the door to see what is on sale. Look what came home in my basket.
All brushed cottons in the shop were on sale. That sale had my name written all over it. Still I think I showed great restraint. They have all found a happy home in the fabric cupboard just waiting for the perfect project to come along.
A good rule of thumb is: If you put something in the fabric cupboard - you should take something out. This bundle is now on the table in the cubby.
It is a kit to make Old St. Nick from the book Primitive Christmas from Primitive Gatherings.
I think if I start now, there's just enough time to finish for Christmas 2009.

Oh, Libby, the baby quilt turned out perfectly! It is just adorable. Aren't Sarah's designs just the best? I worked with her for a few years and it was always such a treat to see what she wore to school each day. It was usually something she had appliqued.

I love your baby quilt! It's especially cuddly looking now that it's crinkly. I wish I could go to that fabric sale, too. I love brushed cottons! Can't wait to see your Christmas project too. Any thing with plaids is good. :-D

Ah, a crinkly quilt warms me heart! I love it! It will become a treasured heirloom for the baby and it's family!

Oh, that is the secret for keeping the stash cupboard under control, (hehe) when I put something in, I have to take something out and use it! Thanks for that tip. :~)

Lucky baby to get such a sweet quilt! Wonderful size too so it will last throughout childhood. Can't wait to see your next quilt -the primitive Christmas book is one of my favorites.
