My sister didn't find out ahead of time if her baby was a boy or a girl. With 3 boys I took a chance (and trusted her husband who promised a girl), and planned for a girl. I started this at my Toronto quilting weekend in April and finished about a month ago. Capri was born during the quilting weekend. I had started this quilt, but did have plan B boy quilt materials waiting just in case. I would have completed it faster, but my machine was being ridiculous. I swear I quilted this quilt 3 times, and ripped it out twice. I was frustrated enough, that I went and got a new machine less than a week later. (and I am in love. Seriously!) Anyway, back to the quilt, if I hadn't specifically picked out the fabric with Jenny (my sister) in mind, it would have been harder to give away. As it was, I was so excited to give it to her, that I held onto it for a month so I could see her reaction in person. :) (if you want to see the back etc, clicking on the picture will take you to my flickr photostream. There are more pics there)
I should have lots to share soon. Not only do I have 3 quilt tops just waiting to be quilted, but Janelle is coming from Toronto. I also want to show off my new baby.....er....machine.
