    Must be getting ready for the gift giving season..

    I started this quilt when my sister found out she was pregnant..That was 2001 :oops: :oops:

    Ben is now 9 and i finished it this summer. I put it in the mail this morning to her. She thinks i forgot it and has no idea it's on its way.

    My mom flew down there today and will get to see my sister open it up.

    I planned it that way all along!! :lol: Yup - that's my story and i'm sticking to it!!

    Now - in HONOR of nephew's birth ;=)

    she's asked me about it periodically, but it has been a long time....She has a habit of letting a box sit there for a while before opening it....I wrote a note on the box that said "Open NOW please" ;)

    btw - that is machine pieced, but hand quilted. I did use poly batting in that (it was my very first quilt), but now i use cotton batting and prefer it.

    Fantastic hand quilting! A few years here and there.... not a problem, I'm sure he'll enjoy his gift (or at least his Mom will)
