    Quilt for new granddaughter!

    Baby Lillian is due in one month, & this is my first quilt in four years... The saying, "Better finished than perfect" sure applies to this one!
    My binding corners are absolutely awful... And I should have top-stitched my prairie points down, had to iron them!
    But I still love it, flaws & all! 😊😊 I'll just make her another 'good' one!
    I hope the pic shows up, posting from my phone...

    beautiful. LOVE those prairie points
    the baby will love it, she'll love playing with the points too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It's really sweet, and the prairie points make it extra special. Must try them one day. Anyway, Lillian will love it to bits.

    What a beautiful baby quilt, very colorful and fun. I love your prairie points and have not yet tried them... but am motivated by yours to try them on a future quilt. Your grandbaby will love it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
