Baby Gator Fan to Be....

Tonight I finished my baby quilt for my neighbor.  It turned out really nice. I fmq footballs across the blue/orange gator fabric and meandered the orange dot and orange gator fabric. I embroidered his name in the corner.

As you can see the backing fabric is not the same as in the initial idea of the quilt.  It is now a colbalt blue. Funny story. Carol, my neighbor calls me at 7:30 am....  Shellie,  you're going to think I'm crazy.  I thought about it all night. I think the backing fabric should be blue. They have a dark haired dog and white will get dirty..... you think I'm crazy; don't you.  Oh NO NO Carol. It is no big deal, I say. We can do that.

embroidered baby boy's name

quilted footballs across the main panel

I'm wondering if I should meander in between the footballs?  I will have to think on that tonight.

Well, off to pack up and clean up for I'm off to Reenie's to sew.....ALL DAY!!!  (brace yourself bucco)
