Whale Baby Quilt Finished

A new little great-nephew is due around Oct 1. This is great-nephew number 7. Of course he needs a quilt; his brother and all his cousins all got quilts when they were born.

I found a cute whale print I know his mom will really like.

And this is what became of it:

It just needs one side of the label hand-stitched down, and a spin thru the washer and dryer, and it'll be ready for the little guy when he gets here.

His mom and dad aren't revealing his name until after he's born, so the label just says "For Baby with Love from Aunt Jan." That's been the case with all the other babies, but each child has his own unique quilt.

I'm pleased with how it turned out. This is about as close to improv as I can get. I hope they like it.

Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and TGIFF at Anja Quilts
