Finished! (finally....)

I started this quilt 2 years ago.  It was meant for my then-two year old daughter, just the right size to fit on her toddler bed.  I lost interest in it as I was determined to hand stitch it and it was taking a VERY long time.  I put it away and forgot about it. 


I remembered it a few weeks ago and decided to finish it for her for Christmas.  It no longer will fit her bed, but I am sure she will love it.  

It's a very simple block pattern, but it was my first real quilt.  The piecing was done by machine, but every where I could find to quilt it was done by hand.  There's quite a bit.  :)

Wow! It's great! When you told me about this quilt, you didn't give yourself enough credit. I'm glad you didn't give up on it! I wish I could see more of the handwork. It takes a long time to hand quilt, even a small blanket.

I am blown away. The colors are just right, and I can see them played out again in some of your soap colors. There is artistry in your soul. *Your* baby blanket was the first thing I had totally hand quilted and I always somehow felt that it was the extra time and love that went into it that made it your very favorite thing for so long.

Too, now that she is older and has some understanding of how long it takes to do nice work, she will have an appreciation of what you have done for her.
