Friends of ours just had their first baby and, as is my tradition for first babies, I made her a quilt.  I've had the top pieced for a long time just waiting for a baby to finish it for and now that Anastasia has arrived, I finally got it all together.  Which is good since her shower is tomorrow.

I have to loosely use the term 'quilt' since this one has no batting in it.  I backed it with flannel and decided that was as thick as I wanted it to be.

This picture is actually a little muted but I couldn't get my camera to cooperate with me today.  I tried a vivid shot but that was too bright.  The red fabric in the bottom right corner has letters and numbers on it.

         


This shows the flannel backing

                   

These are relatively new friends to us so I have no idea of their style.  I'm just hoping it's not too bright.

How fun! A flannel backed quilt sounds super cozy right now!
