A Surprise Quilt

I was recently surprised.  My friend was pregnant and I was positive that she was having a girl baby.  So positive, in fact, that I made her a girl-baby-type quilt.  Imagine our surprise when it was a BOY!

I scrambled and pulled together this quilt for my friend's new baby:

I pulled a bunch of black/white/bright orphan blocks from my basket and simply set and finished the quilt.   The middle block is a sample block I made from Pat Sloan's Scrap Happy Little Wishes Challenge.  I can't remember where the other blocks are from.  Do you recognize any of them?

I learned a lot while quilting it, though, because THIS totally happened.

I played with some more of my new FabuLux thread from WonderFil:

So pretty, right?

I quilted a feathered wreath in the center of each block:

... and this quilt was finished!

Happy birthday, baby boy!
