A Lovely Year of Finishes - LoveLy Baby Quilt finished!

I have managed to finish my LoveLy Baby Quilt and I have to say thank you to "A Lovely Year of Finishes" for this. I'm sure I wouldn't have finished it for months if I hadn't had this "deadline". Just in time for the April Finishes Party!

 As I posted half way through the month for the Mid-month Check-in, I had a few problems to solve. The tags I'd added were sticking too far out. I unstitched them, moved them further in and now I like how they look. I unstitiched the heart I'd quilted on one of the solid pink squares and tried again. The hearts are still a bit wobbly but it's handmade, right?

To be honest I still have to iron it, again. I would also like to add Eline Pellinkhof's crochet heart near the middle, but the quilt is finished and I'm happy with how it turned out. I am very very satisfied at having finished my LoveLy Baby Quilt!

  1. Your LoveLy Baby Quilt certainly lives up to its name. It's beautiful.

  2. Thank you for your special comment. I've seen a very interesting post about Artist Trading Cards in your blog and I am also very interested in the "Dress a girl around the world" project. I will be visiting your blog again soon!

  3. I found you blog on Lily's Quilts blog. I love your baby quilt. You did a great job. Don't be so hard on yourself. IF you don't want it I'll take it for my grand babies lol. I also am going to sign up to follow you thru e mail. Have not figured out Bloglovin yet.

  4. Thank you very much for your encouraging comment. Your Granddaughter is beautiful! How they grow quickly, just over a year ago my baby was tiny like her!
    I am actually going to try selling my LoveLy quilt at a local craft market to hopefully make a little money to buy fabric and supplies! Unless somebody else wants it ;-)
