"Gramma's Toy Box" Baby Quilt

I'm not sure I have ever seen someone so completely and utterly excited to be a new gramma as our friend Patricia is! Her little grandson Grant is 2 weeks old, and I was so anxious to get his quilt done that I stayed up late the other night to put in the final stitches and then run it through the washer and dryer so I could gift wrap it. It finished at 40" by 48" and is just as cute as can be. The hand-quilting doesn't show up very well in the photo so I added a close-up shot with the backing folded over. And guess what? She love love loves it!!!

I'm glad I bought extra of the backing fabric (uh, actually I emptied the bolt!) so I can use it in another baby quilt. After all, I have plenty of brights to go with it!

Thanks, Tara! Good to see you here. I don't have time to make quilts for sale since I keep busy enough making them for family and for new babies. I'll check out your blog!
