Finally finished this baby quilt (CGQC goal 1)

I'm still here! I've actually been sewing, too! I love having my machine back, thanks for all of the cheering last post. You gals make my heart sing somedays. So, here it is...the last time, I PROMISE, that you will see this quilt (I feel like I have over shown this one.) If you remember, this is 1 of 2 quilts that I am making for my friends soon-to-be delivered twin girls. My friend has been in the hospital now for nearly 80 days on completely flat bed rest. Bless her heart, I thought she could use a boost, so I delivered the first quilt. If you remember, I embarassedly did not have the quilts done in time for the shower do to my machine's major attitude. But, my friend, knew of my plight and told me to relax, there was nothing to rush about.

I did love how this turned out. I think it is on my favorite's list. My friend really liked it too...which is even more important. I am really proud of the quilting on it, I feel confident these days when it comes to meandering.

I am currently putting the binding on my mini quilt project and it will go out in the mail early this week!

In other news, did you know that Kraft Mac and Cheese comes in Halloween shapes?? How cute is that!

I will try to get back into the blogging groove this week, thanks for your patience! Some of you have been up to some fun projects. I have been visiting, just not always commenting. I promise to be better this week.
