Sweet Little Baby Girl Quilt

The sweet little baby girl quilt is finished. Again. Remember, this is the one I had tension problems with. There was lots of unsewing. Mr. Muddling helped me with that. He's a keeper, for sure. For so many reasons!

Here it is in all its soft and crinkly freshly washed cuddly-ness.

Chloe was on quilt inspector duty, but she didn't seem to be interested in doing her job.

I found some of this fabric with scriptures a while back at a local quilt shop, and cut this one out to add to my label. 

This panel is in the middle of the backing. It's just a sweet, sweet quilt. It will be going to a niece of Mr. Muddling's co-worker. She has a little girl due next month. I hope she likes it.
I've been making lots of four patches and nine patches in red/white/blue for more USO quilts. Of course Dinah decided the ironing board was the perfect place for her nap.

Not happy at being told she'll have to move.
While we have had LOTS of rain, the growing things seem to be happy about it. We have not had any damage here, though there has been plenty in the area. I am so thankful!

I hope you are having a really good weekend and that you have plenty to make you thankful, too.

Hugs and kisses,

Oh my. What a sweet baby girl quilt! Looks super soft and cozy.
Still seeing pictures of the devastating flooding in Texas on the news each night. Soooooo much water!

Beautiful quilt and some baby will be so warm and cuddly.. Your garden and flowers are looking great. I'm so glad you haven't had to much of the bad weather. I feel so bad for all the people that's going through it. Praying for them everyday. Hope you're having a nice weekend as well. xo

Great finish on the quilt after all the ripping out. And so good to have help!! I do like the idea of using the panels on the back.
Your garden looks like it is enjoying the rain.

Definitely a very sweet little girl quilt -- I'll bet the new mother will be thrilled! And Dinah definitely excels in her cat training -- I think they've all learned about the ironing board, haven't they? ;-D
