Baby Quilt

My friend Chrystal moved to MO two months ago.  She taught me how to sew and is one of my sewing buddies, I've really missed having our sewing days!  She is having a baby in a couple of weeks and has come back home for the month to have her baby, rather than trying to find a new midwife.  She has not been able to do any sewing for the baby with the move, so I told her to come over and I would dig out some of my stash and we could make her baby a quilt top!
 All of this material had been given to me by different people.  I think the original design was supposed to be all gingham, but I switched it up and did my own thing.  When I saw that rabbit material I knew it had to be the center blocks.   Another friend had already started the lambs in the corners and I had Chrystal put the blanket stitch around the two unfinished lambs.  She used my Janome for that.  The rest of it was done on my Treadle, Singer 16 and she used my hand crank Redhead 66.  We changed up the pattern for a quick top and we finished it in about three hours?  I'm thinking the pink gingham would be good for the binding?  What do you think?
Tiger thinks this is his spot to sleep and was not happy about me sewing here!  LOL  Chrystal needs to buy some batting and muslim and then it needs to be quilted!  If she has not had the baby (the shower is Saturday!) I'm hoping she can come over next week so we can finish it up for her!

Do you have sewing buddies?

What a pretty quilt. I love using gingham. Once upon a time I had made a blue and pink gingham quilt for my first daughter.

What a sweet quilt. I think the pink gingham would make a nice border,it would make the other pink pop. I do have sewing buddies,we get together when time allows and I love it when we do.

What a sweet baby blanket. I think gingham makes a great binding. So glad y'all got to get together and sew.

Gingham is a great binding idea. It is a sweet baby quilt. =)
