The problem with traditions is the definition.
When my first great niece, Eliza, was born I made her a quilt...simple but sweet.
When my second great-niece was born, Kayley, I was in oldest son graduating from College, dog has puppies, best friend has life crisis, sidetracked mode...
Kayley has not gotten her quilt yet.
Shame on me!
Kayley....it is coming, you shall get it before you are two darlin!
Kayley's little sister was born on July 7th...little Cameron!!
Auntie Rhonda got her buns in gear in an effort to get my quilt at birth for the great nieces or nephews "tradition" back on track.
Today...drum roll please... I finished the machine quilting...oh man am I horrible at that part.
I stuck with it and made myself let the imperfections go...here are a few shots of the project.
Tonight I plan to sew the binding on...then getting it hand stitched by the end of the weekend -- hopefully this will allow me to send it in the mail before she is the ripe old age of one month...hopefully!
