Let's Drive Baby Quilt Finished!

Hi everyone, I first want to say....OMG...I can't believe how many wonderful people are entering my giveaway. I've been reading all the comments and I'm just speechless. Thank you for your support. This has been so much fun. There are so many wonderful prizes to be won. I've found new interesting blogs that I've added to my ever growing blog lists. I'm going to have to go through them again just to make sure I didn't miss any that I would like to follow. Thanks so much to Sew,Mama,Sew! This has been great. I have so many new followers. Yeah!!!
I've been working on finishing the boys baby quilt for my friend. I ended up hand quilting it because my good sewing machine broke. I had to take it to have it repaired. It took much longer than expected. I had time to hand quilt the whole quilt before I got the machine back. If you click on the picture above, you should be able to see the hand quilting. I put some stars in the white part. I think it looks great and I brought it to my friends today and he loves it. It's a surprise for his wife who just had the baby last week. He said she is going to be very surprised. I'm so happy he liked it. You can see the backing material I used. I really like it. Well, now I have to work on finishing the little girls quilt. I just have to quilt it. Now that I have my sewing machine back, I'm going to stipple it. Well, I hope you all have a great day. Thanks again for participating in my giveaway!!

Happy Stitching!

A baby boy quilt! Oh I'm sure the Mom was very excited. And it is perfect for a little boy. Wow, you hand-stitched them? Now that's what you call a labor of love. Your a such a sweet friend.
