At long last....

I finished quilting this the other day...a big, loose meander.  I put the final hand stitches in the binding last night after 1:00 a.m.  Maybe 1:30.

I am going to show a couple more shots before washing...

If not for  that block that has the sun in it, and then it is used as a cornerstone, this quilt would have been titled 'They Only Come Out at Night'....but I did not think of that before I put the sun in...and still consider naming it that.

I have not made a label for it and I know I should, but I so would like to just get it sent to the child it is for.

The two shots below are after washing and drying.  I had meant to measure to see how much it shrank but totally forgot.

It did not alter the looks of it all that much.

 It is sooooo soft and that how you spell cuddly?  You know what I mean I am sure.  The backing is flannel.

It has taken me long enough to get it done...but I am happy with the results....remember to click to expand the view.
