It's done! Hooray!

So, back in October I was doing some shopping for flannel to make blankets for some of my friends who were expecting. As I was rummaging through the material, I saw this material that said "Quilt me!" (as my sis-in-law told her daughter, "Material talks to Janell!) Anyway, so I bought all the stuff to make a baby quilt thinking this was going to be a piece of cake project for all the ladies to do when I was in Richfield for the deer hunt weekend.
As we began quilting, I decided flannel is about 10 times harder to quilt than tricot....needless to say, we didn't finish the quilt on deer hunt weekend.
Thanks to my fabulous mother, sister, and three of my sis-in-laws, we got a ton of progress done on it that weekend. They came to a decision after working so hard on it that I am not allowed to give it away. My niece, Hayley, loved the doggies on the fabric. She was so cute. (I did make her a pillow that weekend, because I wanted to see something done with my cute cute fabric)
As we got started, it was starting to turn out like I thought it would
Well, after deer hunt weekend, I didn't have much time to work on it, because I knew it would take over my time and I would get behind on homework. However, now that the semester ended last week, it's what I've just been doing with basically all of my time! And this morning, I finally completely finished it! It turned out really cute, if I do say so myself. Steven is in love with it, so we'll see if I pack it away and save it, or give it to him.
This is what the back looks like.

Yay! I'm glad you finally got it done! I hope I didn't mess it up too badly. That was my first time quilting - ever!

And by the way, Hayley still LOVES her pillow that you made her from that material. She sleeps with it every night! Thanks again!
