Baby Quilt Done!

Finally, I finished the baby quilt that was to be a gift for the baby shower this morning! Finished up the binding late last night and had it in the washer before I went to bed at 3 this morning! Nothing like the last minute.......lol!

I used a teddy bear brown and blue flannel for the backing......turned out great and mom-to-be loved it. She is a very special young lady. She received 3 handmade quilts and loved every one of them. She knew she was getting one from Regina and was hoping the rest of us quilters would also give her one. We did not disappoint her!
I also made cut out sugar cookies for favors.........they are onsies and they turned out pretty good! Everyone liked them. The shower was awesome! We have very talented women at our church and very good cooks. Our friend, Val organized it and did a marvelous job (oops, Tammy helped too) cannot forget cutie pie Tammy!
It was a marvelous morning! Had a great time and was able to check off some things from my "To Do List"...... yipppeeee!!!!

WONDERFUL NEWS FLASH..............
I am going to be a grandma for the first time..........we are so excited..........this may not be the first time I mentioned it and probably won't be the last..........bear with me......lol!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy sewing!
