Congrats, Jenell!!

Some of us ladies that have been friends through Block Central Forum, The Quilt and Needle Forum and Facebook got together to make a quilt for Jenell's newest grandbaby. We all did different parts from making a block or two, doing borders, putting the top together, quilting, binding, supplying the backing, batting, making a label, etc....



Since I did the quilting, I got to see the finished product before sending it off to Jenell. It sure turned out pretty. I've been waiting to post it on my blog but wanted to make sure Jenell got it first and posted it on facebook. Here's a picture of the finished quilt.



Funny thing, this was a new quilt pattern to me... hadn't seen it done up before and I really liked it. When I went to guild this past week, another lady brought in the same quilt, a little larger and different colors... loved that one also. I think I might have to make one in my colors.

That is such a pretty quilt Deb. I'm just sorry I didn't know about it sooner to be able to help for Janell's gift.
Does your quilt shop have the pattern?
