I have a new finish!

I've been stitching away on this sweet baby quilt.  It is completely hand stitched, from the yo yos to sewing the rick rack on to sewing the strips together.  I quilted it with different perle cotton to match the colors of the yo yos.  After all this hand sewing, I couldn't machine stitch the binding on, that would be wrong.  So this is another testimont to my stubborness.  After I washed it, this quilt is nice and crinkly.  And now that it is completely finished and ready for grandbaby number seven, I will soon start on another baby quilt just in case this new one is a boy!

That is one lucky grandchild and you are an amazing quilter. I saw your grandmother's garden in Craftser and took a look at your other quilts. You have a pair of amazing hands. Take care of them! As a beginner in quilting I am awe-struck.
