    I finally took some pictures of my finished quilt. I really liked sewing all of it, but I just loved piecing the top together. It seemed to go so fast and I loved seeing it come together. The applique went much better once I used the right foot! I was so worried about the points that I didn't pay enough attention when I was putting on the borders so that's where my biggest mistake is!
    Followed the pattern Flutterby by The Noble Wife, fabric is Child's Play with Kate by Northcott. Back is flannel from Hobby Lobby. The baby is being induced tomorrow so should know the name soon to finish the label.

    Thanks everyone. There is room for improvement of course, but I am very happy with how it turned out. I drew and hand stitched the label applique, turned out really cute.

    Thank you all! It means a lot that experienced quilters think I did a good job. I can't wait to meet her and wrap her up in my quilt! I'll try to get a picture with the recipient tomorrow!
