As The Sun Slowly Sinks in the West

I frantically worked to finish and photograph this quilt:


Yes, this is my one and only finish for this quarter's Finish-A-Long.  And, it's finished just under the wire!  Good thing I live in the same time zone as Leanne.  I rushed home from work tonight, to finish sewing on the binding before the sun set.

So, this is a baby quilt for Jack, my nephew's son.  He was born last November, so I'm a tad late.  But, I'm sure he won't mind.  It's an I spy quilt, made with charm squares I collected in a swap several years ago. One of them is a saw and hammer - his daddy is a carpenter.  The sashing is actually a sage green - the colour didn't come out all that well, probably because it was twilight!

I'm linking up with the 2013 Finish-A-Long and A Stitch in Time Linky Party.

I'm sure Jack will love finding all the special fabrics on his quilt! He's more able to appreciate it at this age, it wouldn't have been developmentally appropriate to give a newborn this quilt. ;)

Wonderful "I Spy"--I like the larger patches of each fabric--he will love it I'm sure...hugs, Julierose

I like that on-point setting -- makes it look a lot fancier!
