    Thanks annesthreads. It really turned out great. I will have to keep my eye out for a group of fabrics that will work as well as your does.

    I've been saying exactly the same thing for at least 20 years. Good luck changing your habits. If you manage it, please pass on your secret. lol Quilt looks great BTW.

    I had a similar experience only it was 4 moms having babies within 6 months of each other - talk about pressure! Next time, don't tell them you are doing it for them, just surprise them. You pulled off one seriously lovely quilt though so good job you!

    Thankyou - I bought the fabrics together for the quilt, but before I'd worked out what pattern I wanted to use. Had to go back for more yellow - luckily still in stock!

    I kind of did the same thing with my newest DGS's quilt. He was due in September and i found out in Feb. the he was on the way. I couldn't make up my mind on a pattern, i couldn't decide on the embroideries, etc. i was busy with so many other quilts that i ended up doing it right before we left to see him. I like the quilt, i just wasnt thrilled with the quilting. They loved it and thats what counts. I really dont like working under that much pressure, but i seem to make a habit of it.

    Very cute fabric choices. Your friend will enjoy using it with her new baby. You'll be thought of often!

    Awe, it's precious! Sometimes I work best under pressure!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I am the worst procrastinator because I always have something in the fire (like too many want-to-do things for others). I seem to do alright under pressure and manage to get it done if I have a deadline to meet.

    The quilt is adorable, and the colors are bright and cheerful. You obviously work well under pressure. Congrats!

    I think it is so cute. Both front and back. Beautiful. I, too, have worked under pressure and do not like it. It wears a person out terribly. Teresa

    Looks good. I think your one of those people who work well under the pressure of having to have it finished. I've done that sometimes and I'm a nervous wreck trying to finish but then can relax again. I do like to just work along but I think the pressure works on me also and maybe on you. Your quilt looks very nice and you s/b pleased to give to your friend. She'll love it. Have fun. Sue, P.C., Fl

    Adorable!!! She is going to love this, and her baby will too! I do the same thing and promise myself I won't ever do it again, but I do. I'm getting better at it. In fact, I finished my daughter's birthday quilt and gave it to her at Easter!

    Stop kicking yourself! Your muse took her time but that's what was needed to get the quilt just right. It's delightful, AND got done in plenty of time. It will be months before it will be cool enough for this springtime baby to actually need a warm quilt, and even longer before he will be able to recognize the trucks, cars and choochoos. Everybody will be thrilled with it. What a sweet friend you are to put so much thought and effort into a baby gift!

    It sure looks nice. Maybe working under pressure suits you.

    I hate it when I do that to myself! I can't blame anyone else, I'm the guilty one.. When I'm working like that, I'm always afraid something will happen, like my machine breaking or something that will make me miss giving a gift when I should.. I try to do things in a more timely manner now.. I've had enough of those panic sessions...
