    I guess I can say I'm ahead of schedule. The last quilt I did for our other GD didn't get started until she turned 2. I was a bad nana and actually forgot I didn't get her's made. The DS & DIL didn't make up their mind as to what the room was going to be done in and after several attempts I gave up...until she got PG again. That's when it clicked with me I never did do the quilt... Bad Nana, Bad Bad.

    So I did hers and figured I better get started on #3's.

    Well, Kelcey is 2 weeks old and I have her quilt finished! Had help from the board deciding on the boarder fabric but her Momma had the final say.

    This is the most quilting I have ever done on a project. Pretty basic in comparison to some of the outstanding projects I've seen on here, but I can say I'm pretty proud of it. Best of all , it was made with love and I can't do anything better than love. :)

    for our newest GD -- born 2 weeks ago

    It looks wonderful and you should be really proud of yourself! Think of all the time you have now to just enjoy her and make other things!

    Thanks...it looks a little wonky but it had been folded up when I asked the DH to hold it up for me to take a picture. Didn't take the time to smooth it out since he was nice enough to hold it for me.

    I don't know how it would feel to ever be ahead of schedule. Nice looking quilt for the new one.

    Clapping that you have it done so close to her birth. And I love the idea of using polar fleece on the back for a little one. Very cute.
