    Finished my first quilt! :D

    So, last Thursday or Friday I believe, I posted seeking advice on how I should quilt my first quilt for my first baby. I'm currently five months pregnant and had not yet found out the gender. The next day we did, and we're having a little boy! And now my little boy has a quilt! It's the first time I've quilted anything. I'm pretty pleased with it even with it's issues :P I hope it's something my son will enjoy for several years.

    How creative is that?!! Too cool. You'll enjoy making lots of things for your baby boy before he arrives ... I can just see him dragging this around for years and that will come sooner than you think!

    It's a beauty, any little boy would be thrilled with it. Wish I was a quilter when my own two boys were small, all I ever made them were matching jackets and clothes. We are all looking forward to see the many other quilts you will be making now that you have your first one finished. Thank you for sharing with us and congratulations on your soon to arrive son.
