Getting it Done

Here's a quilt for a baby boy that was finished up a week or so ago.  I have 4 of this client's quilts, and am currently working on finishing up #3.  They should be all set to go by week's end or early next week.  She does a lot of hand applique, and the work is really nice.
 This is a cute quilt that I have not seen before.  The blocks are very boyish - more so than I ever used on my kids's quilts.  The quilting uses mostly So Fine threads - I didn't want anything shiny for this quilt so Glide was out.  I have not used SoFine in a while and have forgotten how well it can run in the machine.

 The blocks have a couple of different fillers to make the appliques pop.  The pin-striped ones wee used because they seemed to tie in well with the baseball uniform's ticking fabric.  It's simple, non-frilly, non-girly, etc.  Although I have been known to use feathers on a quilt for a male, this one just seemed "ALL BOY".
I love how the rolled up shorts use the backside of the fabric for the part rolled up.  The details on this quilt keep you looking.

I'm busy trying to push through my backlog of quilts because April is just going to be a nutsy month.  I'm getting pretty excited about going to MQX in 2 weeks, and then Paducah 2 weeks later.  It doesn't leave that much time to just get things done though :-)
