Baby Gabriella's Quilt

As I sat by my sewing machine the other day, I asked myself how I could be this far behind in making my latest baby quilt. I mean really, it's not as if the stork just dropped her off un announced!

We had 9 blissful months (well blissful for me because I wasn't the one with morning sickness!) to prepare for this little bundle of joy!

And she is just adorable!

AND she needs a quilt!

But here I am, stitching away like a mad woman, while she snuggles in a blanket that was not made by me. Ok, so I'm not actually that obsessive. I feel much more strongly about giving Gabriella a baby quilt, than I do about my cousin (Gabriella's mommy) actually using the quilt.

But, no one will get the chance to use it, if I don't finish it!

See all that white space on my design wall. That is primarily supposed to be pinwheels. Why, oh why do I always make quilts with those darn Half-Square Triangles!

If you remember the Christmas quilt I finished late in December (just in time actually) That is the same pattern I am doing here. Only with that quilt I used several fabrics and on this one, I'm only using three flannel fabrics.

Let's hope I finish this before little Gabby turns one!

If it makes you feel any better, I am trying to finish one for a little girl born in December! You will finish and she will have plenty of time to use it. I love the colors you are using!
