Baby Quilt Finished!!

I'm still a novice quilter, so this quilt isn't perfect, but I sure enjoyed making it, and it has lots of love stitched in. I hope that Elijah will enjoy many happy hours snuggled up in it.

Gus kept wanting to "help" me while I was working on it, so it's a wonder I was able to get it finished in time.  I finally had to warm up a batch of towels in the dryer and put them on the bed to lure him away.  He LOVES taking naps on warm towels (yes, he is a tad spoiled, lol), and that usually buys me a few uninterrupted hours.

My sister is having a scheduled c-section, so Elijah will be here on Friday, and I sure can't wait to meet him!  :)

Quilt pattern is the baby quilt found in "Quilting 101 - A beginners guide to quilting"

I think it's absolutely beautiful! Elijah will sleep so peacefully under it.

I love your method for keeping Gus out of your way--very sneaky of you!
