Baby Quilt...FINALLY FINISHED!

I started this quilt as soon as we knew the couple was pregnant. That was back in February 2008. Needless to say, the baby has arrived and is now over a year old. Oops. I blame the N-boy in part, as he helped me choose the pattern. He liked this "Amish Waves" pattern, and somehow I didn't think that the triangles would be a problem. Oops. Each block is 8 finished and has 48 triangles. Teeny tiny triangles.

So here is is... I'm happy it's finished, and actually quite pleased with the way it turned out.

The N-boy also helped me choose some of the fabrics, and some of them came from my stash and from scraps I inherited from Grammy.

It's quilted in the ditch with invisible thread on the top, with an off-set black quilted square in the middle of each block.

Now it's all packaged up with a card and a letter, addressed and just waiting for the post office to open.
Yay for FINALLY getting it done!!!

  3. Wow! That is a LOT of work for a baby quilt. I'm too lazy for that but I've always wanted to make an Ocean Waves / Amish Waves quilt. It's stunning!
