A Finish!

The Hugs and Kisses Quilt

I think I'm safe in posting this even though it hasn't arrived yet.

There's a new baby coming soon in our family and this is a quilt of hugs and kissed from "the Aunts", Uncle and Grandma.  There's a hug and a kiss from each one.

You can't see the quilting very well, but there's the first letter of the name of the person it's from in the center of each of the hugs.  Then "X's" and "O's" in the border as well.  It's all hand quilted,. 

It was so fun to pull it together and work on it together--for some just talking about what kind of fabric they'd choose and for others the hands on quilting and piecing.
I put the top together as well as several of the squares (6--3 hugs and 3 kisses) and contributed a teeny tiny bit to the quilting.  It's backed with Heather'Ross' Cricket in the Clover.

Even though we can't be there to love on the little one when she arrives we're thinking of her and her parents and will be sending hugs and kisses her way very soon.

That's one more off my Third Quarter List (HERE).

Well done on your finish. I'm sure the new baby will be wrapped in love when it's wrapped in this quilt. It's great to find another hand quilter too. Visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
