Friday finish -- Grandbaby Quilt

I have no grandchildren and I need to stress that my son and his wife ARE NOT EXPECTING. I repeat: there are no babies on the way!

Having said that, I can find no reason not to make quilts for my non-existent grandbabies.

I made a new sample of my Too Hip to Be Square pattern using Bear Essentials from P & B Textiles.

Won't this quilt be a perfect floor quilt for when my future grandbabies come to play at my house?

I thought so, too.

Some close-ups of the quilting:

I chose bright orange thread for the entire quilt because, hey, why not?

And in case you weren't paying attention at the beginning of this post, I'll say one more time: I am not expecting to become a grandmother any time soon. No babies. Got it? I don't want to start getting phone calls about this.

Check out what others have Finished for Friday!

There is nothing that says you can't plan ahead. I speak from experience ... grand kids are wonderful. Of course, I only have the one 6 month old baby... but I love hanging around with her when I can which isn't all that often.

That's some quilt. And, wow, the quilting is fabulous. Bonnie/va

What GB would not love that quilt. Color and texture will spark lots of investigation. Good for you... thinking ahead. Not going to be rushed or on a deadline! I have a couple of quilts in the works for GGBs my grands are in their late teens, and it's only a matter of time, isn't it?
