So, the AB Baby quilt is done. This was my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for June and also #2 on my Second Quarter Goals for the 2018 Finish Along. I’ll be linking up to both those online challenges as the link-ups become available.
The quilt will be for our soon-to-be-born granddaughter Evie. The letters were cut from a panel from the fabric line Nature Walk by Tamara Kate, and the pattern was published to go along with the letters. I used fabrics mostly from about 4-5 of her various lines (I love her stuff!). There are some other fabrics in there too, but the lion’s share is Tamara Kate fabric. And so is the backing. This print comes from her newest line, Joy, and I thought with its gentle print of butterflies and flowers, etc, it was the perfect complement to the top.
The quilt finished at about 52x62”. I used a plain ol’ stipple to quilt it, and then bound it with the gray stripes print that had originally be auditioned (and rejected) for the sashing strips.

And since I had another recent photo on my phone, I’d thought I’d share with you a picture of Mr. Cat himself - Alfalfa. I can’t imagine anyone would mind a picture of such a handsome chap!
Bruce is off work for this week, so we have been puttering around the house. Yesterday was garden work (in the morning) and errands (in the afternoon). Today was cleaning (Bruce - his bathroom and man cave/laboratory) and for me it was Weight Watchers, sewing, and the phone-techy stuff. Tomorrow we’ll probably go visit Red Butte Garden again in Salt Lake to see the roses at their peak and to get some sunshine, then go out to lunch. The weather here has been mild (mid-seventies) this week, so we’re going to enjoy it to the max!
