FO: Babe in the Woods

My cousin is pregnant with her fourth child  who is due in just a few weeks, so it was time to get moving on the Babe in the Woods quilt.
The top was done, so it just needed to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. Being a baby blanket, I was able to accomplish that all on Sunday afternoon.
Again, nothing fancy with the quilting, just some likes around each piece. Mom will be giving me some free-motion lessons soon, but for now I'm happy with straight lines. I can't do too much damage that way!
The quilt was made with some leftover blocks from one of Mom's quilts, some leftover fabric (trees) from Woodland Ballet, and a few pieces picked up from the clearance bin at Lens - including this cool backing fabric. It's not traditional baby colours, and I love it.
Now I've got to get it backed up and in the mail (they live in Quebec) before the little guy arrives!

That quilt turned out Beautiful! I LOVE the backing (and the fact that none of it is traditional "baby" colors).

Perfect non-traditional colors for a wee little one.

I love that color combination too!! That whole free motion quilting thing sounds so fun! It looks easy but I'm guessing it's not.
