Double hourglass quilt is done!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good day.
Sorry I haven't posted in a week.
 I have been so busy with work, the kids and life.
 I did get some sewing done in the last two days.
I finished the baby quilt for my MIL.
I really like the way it turned out.
I did have problems with my newer sewing machine.
I am going to have to bring it in to have it serviced.
 Thankfully I have my old trustworthy machine to fall back on.
That machine, which I am going to name "Betty"
because she is made by White. (Get it!)
I'm not very good with jokes.
Old Betty has not been serviced in over 20 years and she is still going strong.
She is heavy duty and a bit banged up.
 But she always works.
 Once I figured out how the tension worked on it,
I have never had a problem with it since.
 I just wish I could do free motion quilting with it.
 Hmmmm......I am going to have to look into that a bit more.
Well, here is my quilt. I used soft flannel for the back!
 I think it is very cute!
I hope you like it!
