finally finished!!

wow, that quilt may have been a little too much for my plate.  naaah!  it was fun-most of the time!  i definetly learned some things, and know what to do for next time.  its not the most perfect quilt that has ever lived, but its for my baby, from her mommy-and that's all that matters to me!  can't wait to make one for david! 
i purchased the patterns for the "mini kimmy doll" and her quilt at youcanmakethis.com  the instructions were super easy to follow...even for a beginner!  i watched lots of youtube videos on binding and quilting as well!  this will be a great little quilt for emily to spread out on the floor and have a picnic with her dolly!  my binding leaves something to be desired, but i'm sure it will get better with time.  i think its all about finding my own style. 

i can't wait to bake emily's princess cake tonight.  i also have to put my chicken parm together and still finish cleaning the house(that will now be handed over to hubby!!)

i ordered more fabric today...onto the next adventure!
