Baby Clothes Quilt Finished, and Pretzel Progress

I finished the Baby Clothes quilt the other day. I am very, very pleased with the result.

More importantly, so is the recipient. The back is simple cream cotton. After attaching the binding on the front, I snipped it close so it's 1/4" leaving the back binding a bit broader, closer to 3/4". I like the look of it, given the front is so busy it doesn't interfere, but with the wide expanse of cream it really sets is off.

I would really love to do more of these. It 'fills me up' so to speak.

Alas, the Pretzel Party. Still not a party, but at least I have a layout I'm happy with.

I've started putting it together, but the hexagons are proving quite a challenge! It's a lot to try and line up. Perhaps a good night's sleep will help me with the mechanics of this. I would love to finish the top tomorrow, but I doubt that will happen!


Got three miles in on the treadmill today. I'm longing for the day I can go out and just run, but the negative temperatures aren't for me. I'm aiming for the OKC 1/2 Marathon the last weekend in April.

The baby clothes quilt is GORGEOUS. Absolutely beautiful. I am so happy the recipient is happy. :)

Good job on the run. I know it is not as fun as running outside, but it gets you moving, right?

I am looking forward to April!!

I love the baby quilt - it has turned out spectacularly well!! It was a great idea...and the proof is in the pudding, so to speak!

Beautiful quilt! after you piece it and put it all together, do you actually quilt stitch the top, or do you tie it? either way, beautiful!
