A Finish...Baby Nate's Quilt

 

Well, I finally finished at 4:30 a.m., placed Nate's little quilt
in the washer and went to bed.
Got up a little late, but still in time for the shower for Nate's Mommy, 
but when I pulled it from the dryer, I noticed it had a little yellow stain.
ARRRGGGHHH!
Back into the washer it went!
An hour later, out of the dryer it came AGAIN
and all super soft, warm and squishy...and no fabric softener stains! YAY!
Problem though...shower already in full swing...
and I am about 45 minutes across town.
I didn't make it.



Not to worry though, I will see them later 
and she will still get to take it home 
to her awaiting little nursery...
and from what I hear...all decked out in powder blue...





I chose to do a baby quilt that was 
not so baby in look, but definitely in FEEL.
The combination of flannel and cotton 
guaranteed the overall softness.
I must say, I do like the way it looks...



Nate's mommy was wanting a "grow with" sort of room,
and this quilt will definitely not scream baby forever...

Even though I didn't make the actual shower (at 10:30 a.m.) 
the quilt was finished in time for baby Nate!
