WOOHOO! Baby quilt is finished


I know it's not perfect, but it's the biggest patchwork/quilting project I've ever completed and I'm really chuffed with it. Kate loves it too. I finished hand stitching the hexagons at about 7am this morning, then machine stitched the border/binding. Kathy and I had a trip up to the Calico Barn this afternoon so I could buy the wadding and the backing fabric - a yellow check that is also on the front - then I basted the three layers together, quilted it, very simply, and hand stitched the binding. And now it's FINISHED!
