finished the quilt

Whew! I did get my quilt finished. It took longer than I expected to take out the unsatisfactory stitching, but once that was behind me it was smooth sailing. I still need to stitch down the name tag and hand stitch the corners closed but that will only take a few minutes.
I will be seeing Olivia's parents this weekend and I will give it to them then.


I noticed that the overall design doesn't show up real well when it's laying flat.

Better if you see it hanging...or from a distance.


And there is a peek of the backside...


The sun was so bright it makes the colors look a bit harsh. It's prettier here in the shade.


I hope little Olivia likes it!

Now, I need to tidy up my sewing room and see what's next.  I have something to get sewn before Christmas but I can't say what it is..
I also have two "block of the month" projects  that need finished up....and I will probably work on charity quilts with one of my quilt groups.
