I was able to make good progress on a new little friend's quilt because she decided to show up-- little Reagan Olivia arrived last week to our friends Amy & Jeff's house and she is beautiful. I made a psuedo I-Spy quilt top for her but had to wait 'til she got here to add her birth info. I got the info on the quilt top, sandwiched, basted and stitched in the ditch. When I went to meet Miss Reggie I tried to outline her little hands and feet to add them via embroidery but she was NOT happy to be bothered. So I got a rough outline of her feet and we'll just wait on the hands for now. Reagan's mom doesn't really like the little girl pink and ruffles that is so common, so you see I used black for the borders and black/grey roses for the backing. I'll work on the binding this week and deliver it soon to this little sweetie. Hopefully, I'll catch her in a happier mood!
One update-- Jude finally got his quilt, too. I promised his mom he'd have it before he left for college so hey! This may be a record for me and definitely a stride toward ending my procrastinating habit!
