I guess it didn't really take THAT long - it just felt like a long time because I wouldn't let myself work on anything else until it was done. I was doing some cleaning/organizing this weekend and found three (!!) quilts I started between 2 & 3 years (!!!) ago in various states of completion. I couldn't let that happen with this one.
The mama-to-be registered for the two cute sheets below at Target. I grabbed them along with a coordinating set of flannel receiving blankets. It's a pretty simple quilt, and I know chevron's a bit over-done at this point - but since the sheet she picked out is chevron, I figured it was a safe choice.
Oh - and the little green "flag" in the top right corner, shown in the top picture? Covers up an oops. My mom said every handmade quilt needs an oops, though. Thanks, Mom.
