Alexia's Quilt is done!

The first of the twin baby quilts is all finished! I tried to have both done for today, but my sweetie offered to take me out for sushi tonight so I only had time for one quilt. :-)

I plan on getting the second one done when I get back from the cottage Sunday night.

So here is Alexia's quilt...

I'm really sorry about the crap photo, but I won't be able to get a good picture until the weekend and I really wanted to tell you about this finish.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I used a MBS tutorial for this baby quilt and it was super quick and easy to put together. I went with a Deb Strain charm pack (Always and Forever) and a very small print for the background (can't remember the collection unfortunately). The binding is Kona Bubblegum.

The back is a super soft flannel by Cloud 9. It is absolutely divine! It measures 40" square before washing.

My sweetie and I spoke to the twins' mother tonight to see when we could visit and we found out baby Olivia came home today, but Alexia is still struggling... So if you are the praying type, please say a little prayer tonight for baby Alexia. I know their mother is really anxious to have them both home.

I'll be back on Sunday with Olivia's finished quilt!

Linking up at these wonderful blogs this week:

And then I'll spend a few hours getting inspired by all the wonderful projects in the linky parties! You should too! :-)

Have a great weekend!

Izzy
