It's been a really long time since I last posted anything!

Here is a baby quilt I made for a friend's first child.  It's finished and is still sitting on my table as I have yet to make it out to her house to give it to her!

I just used a plain muslin backing for it, as they're very nature-oriented and kind of bohemian, and I thought it would work better.  The quilting was done by machine as I attempted to do something a bit more complicated than straight lines.  It's a bit wonky in some places, as it's only my second quilt, but I'm proud of it and pleased with it.

Pretty!  And you did a nice job with the pinwheels.  I just tried doing pinwheels for the first time, and while some of the points lined up nicely, a bunch of them did not.  I'll have to practice on this a bit more!
