Crafty Girl: Part 5

Okay, getting off the updates on Matthew track for just a bit, I've been wanting to post this picture for a long time. I have had this quilt finished for a couple months now; but the person whose baby it was for I was pretty sure read my blog; at least from time to time. I didn't want to spoil the surprise. I was able to give it to her this week, so here it is for all to view. It turned out so great, I think. The triangles are red and brown minky (the soft fabric with little raised bubbles) and the square shapes are a cute farm print with cows horses and pigs on it. I backed it with the red minky and then free hand machine quilted on each farm fabric square. The binding is black and white striped fabric that matches the cows legs. If you click on the picture you can make it bigger.

Now I can't wait to meet the baby boy that is the recipient of this blanket!

{sorry the picture is a bit blurry; this picture is from my cell phone as I forgot to take a picture of it with my good camera before gifting it!}
