Baby Quilt Reveal!!!

Quote for the Day:

I've been working on some gift quilts lately, so haven't been able to post about them.  However, yesterday was the baby shower for my new grandson due in June, so now that the quilt has been gifted and received, I can reveal it to all of you!!

Unfortunately, the shower was in Tennessee on my short weekend, so I wasn't able to attend it myself.
Fortunately, the quilt arrived safely in time for the shower!  

This is the happy, soon-to-be parents of the baby...

They picked mint green and gray for the nursery colors and I used a free pattern I found online.

The back!  
I decided it needed a "pop" of color so 
I added the orange stripe on the back!

The label...

Fondling the quilt...
you know you like to do it, too!  LOL

I know the "greens" look like they are quite different in the pictures, but in person they go well togehter.  I just have a crappy camera that takes crappy pictures!  :(

Erin and Dale seem pleased with the quilt and that makes me very happy!!!

I also made some receiving blankets and burp cloths...
