A Finish, A Flower & A Win...

I'll start with the finish... on the weekend I finished the girly baby quilt... now I have my two quilts at the ready so I am prepared for either a niece or a nephew to be born at the end of this month...
 Isn't the panel clever the way it appears to have been pieced & appliqued... so pretty & easy to do... the binding is machine-sewn, love that method...
The backing is a two-tone soft pink stripe with tiny flowers & bugs...
And the binding is the same fabric, but the print is blues...yes, I am continuing my therapy...
 I am counting this quilt as a 'Love' item for my Birthday-Love Stash for June, & as it's a panel that's been residing in my Overload for a couple of years it's also a Sew It's Finished item too!
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~*
Now to the win... I was lucky enough to win this great book from Tracee Hun Bun, after his Mumma's recent holiday in Dunsborough WA... one of the best places in our State if you want my unbiased opinion! I am so glad that Hun Bun does not think badly of me because I am an avowed Dog Person...
Tracee & HB, this is a beautiful book, full of lots of inspiration, how did you know I need a new peg bag?!
Thank You My Friend...
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
And the flower... I am joining the One Flower Wednesday Garden Party over HERE... love this flower...
To see some more hexagonal flowery-ness, pop over for a look at what others are making...

`♥`Happy Wednesday`♥`

Hello Anthea,

All you need now is for the baby to arrive. Panels make great quilts, there are some great designs on them.
Happy days.

Your baby quilt is lovely Anthea, I've had a baby panel quilt hiding away in my sewing shed for some time now, I think it's about time I made it into a quilt.
