Finally finished my Baby Nines

I might name this little quilt "Little Blossoms" instead of Baby Nines because of all the little flowers in the snowball blocks. The pattern is called "June Lake 3" but I don't see a lake, do you? :o)

So here it is. All I had to finish was that little loopy border between the little green hst border and the nine patches. It needed something. It was too puckery (I don't think that's a real word but you know what I mean, right?) but it couldn't be too much because there wasn't that much quilting on the rest of the quilt. My sister Isabel suggested it. She's so dang smart. Man, now that I said that in 'print' she's never going to let me live it down. hehe

I think I shared this picture before but I love it because it shows all of the little floral fabrics in this project. I bought it as a kit for a little over twenty dollars.

Here is the loopy border I just did tonight.

And here is a picture of the back of the quilt. It's a sweet soft green with little polka dots that will snuggle a little grand baby someday. "Sigh..."

Boy, it feels good to get that one done. I was so close for so long. I think I will just put a small label on it with my name and the date since I don't have a baby to give it to yet. I could put it to "the unknown baby", sort of like the unknown comic!! LOL

I love the scalloped border, Liz! This is a precious little quilt. Congrats on finishing it. Maybe it will be your "good luck" charm for getting a grandbaby!!
