It is finished!

My grandson and his wife are expecting this month. At Christmas, they told us that a boy was coming their way. By Spring, it mysteriously turned into a baby girl, so here are the baby boy quilt that just got added to my cupboard of coming attractions and the baby girl quilt for my very first great-grandchild. I love quilting, butmy fingers are full of tiny little holes from a couple of months of heavy duty quilting.

Both are cute! Love them! Do you hand-quilt your quilts?

I just got lessons on hand-piecing yesterday. I really like that. I need to get going on my hand piecing project so I can set up a little lap sewing kit for the living room and the car.

Keep showing your work. I love it! Even the little boy quilt would be cute for a girl! I love all those colors together.

Hugs!
(Headed up to Perrysburg next week)

Thanks for the kind words, Lois. Yes, I hand quilted the bejabbers out of these quilts and my fingers prove it. I have only hand quilted one king size and it took forever, but my son has that one to remember me by with I kick the bucket.
If you're going to be in Perrysburg, I'd love to see you...maybe meet for lunch or something equally fun. I'll come over to your place to leave a phone number on private message.

I am not, nor could I ever be, a quilter but oh how I admire the work and those that take it on. Both of these quilts are so lovely and you can be very proud of each of your aching talented fingers:)

Beautiful work Kacey! Love them both, but my favorite has to be the "girl" quilt! Kudos for the hand quilting!

Both quilts look wonderful, but I still don't care for the colors on the boy quilt. (As you know!) P.S. I LOVE YOU.

We are enjoying our old baby quilts again with the arrival of our grandson (not sure you knew that). My wife can't go a week without some "face time" with Grant, who turns one in January.

I'm not sure we'll be around long enough to become great-grandparents, so we'll really have to enjoy seeing Grant grow up.
