Jackie's Quilt

For Jackie's Surprise shower my mom and I also did a surprise quilt! I had bought a kit from this talented lady, a while back. I gave it to Jackie to make for her baby boy. She quilted the top together. I took it home and told her I would give it back to her if I didn't finish it. I lied and told her I had left it with my mom.

Next I basted it together for her since she's pregnant and cannot use the basting spray. Then I machine quilted it and sewed on the binding. The night before the shower the blanket wasn't finished. I thought I wouldn't get it done in time.

I went over to my friend Melissa's that night to watch the BL and we finished it in two hours! We were hauling! Here's the final product. Jackie picked out the red back. I love it! Good Choice Jackie! I also love the diagonal machine quilting. It was my mom's suggestion. Good one mom! Thanks everyone for making this quilt a success!
