Quilt for Baby D

We are back from a long vacation to the East Coast. My brother Mikey grauated from MIT with TWO master's degrees-- one in Urban Planning and one in Transportation. Mazel Tov Mikey! Along the way I got to see some friends and lots of family.

I've been wanting to show a picture of this quilt for a long time. I've been working on it since January. This is a piece of fabric from Ikea (I think it's supposed to be a curtain). I hand quilted the entire thing for my soon-to-be nephew. The back is yellow flannel and the binding is red flannel. I don't have any better pictures of it right now because I forgot to photograph it at home with my SLR camera. This is taken from my point and shoot. It's a really fun quilt and I very much enjoyed the hand quilting. I was able to do it while spending time with Ron in front of the tv after the kids had gone to bed. It also came on many trips with me-- Dominican Republic, Arizona, San Diego. I will definitely continue to hand quilt.

That is so AWESOME!!! I've been collecting big-print IKEA duvet covers whenever I find them at thrift stores or garage sales, with grand plans to make a quilt or two like this myself someday. Good job! That quilt is such a treasure!
