Getting Through Winter

Thought I would share a few pictures of the crib quilt I finished for my son Layne. I was so inspired by Jacky when I saw her fabrics for a quilt she was making for a teacher gift. I was hooked . I knew I must make my son one out of that fabric!!! I was already trying to come up with an idea for a crib quilt for him as he's been kind of left out of everything because he was born on New Years Eve. With all the Christmas hoop-la (even though I live for it) ,the little things were just forgotten. Both my other children were made a quilt even before they were born by myself or a grama, so Im a tad behind. But hey-Im told not to feel too guilty now that there are 3 to chase!
Hand stitching in process. Loving the measuring tape border.
I backed it with a white vintage popcorn chenille blanket.
All done! Time to iron!
Now some fresh air to chase away the winter blues.....

I love the quilt. I just bought some of the same fabrics and I was going to attempt my first quilt with them. I'm glad I found yours, so I can get some ideas about how to lay it out.
