Baby quilt all ready to go

I finished it! It took 6 fat quarters, 1/4 yard of minky fabric, and about 1-1/2 yards of white fabric. I quilted it on my machine with light pink thread. The backing fabric is one of the pinks used on the front. It's so cute! Jessie keeps trying to steal it :)

It turned out so cute. I love the little "surprise" minky squares. I really had to look hard to find them. I also love the prairie points. Really finishes it off nicely. What a beautiful, fun quilt. You are so talented!

Heather, the colors and patterns of the fabric are perfect all together for a baby quilt. Great job! I don't blame Jessie a bit for wanting to nab it for herself. :)

Shores of Hawk Run is looking great. I kinda like that quirky little seahorse!

Absolutely beautiful! I may have to make one of those! I love to quilt but just made a simple quilt with minky (first time) so I may have to do a more complicated (and prettier quilt next time!) Here is mine:

Like I said, simple! I did make a "snoozin snakes" quilt a year or so ago. You can see it in my blog, also. But never anything like this! It is gorgeous!!
