Virtual Quilt Show

If you haven't seen it yet, Amy @ Park City Girl (here) is having an on-line virtual quilt show. What a fun idea! I've enjoyed looking at everyone's quilts. Thanks, Amy.

Here is my entry. I just made this quilt a few weeks ago (story here) and gave it to my daughter #1 for her baby shower. It is for our first grandbaby, Grace, who as of today has not yet arrived, but I am on pins and needles waiting for a call. She is due within a few days - it could be any minute, right? I am getting excited, as you can tell.

I wish my photos turned out better - I will have to look into some ways to improve them, but I've been too busy sewing and working, etc. This was made and quilted on my regular machine, before I got the long arm quilter. I enjoyed making it, and am looking forward to making a similar one and using the quilter.
