Summer Drinks - Finished!

Another one to check off the far-too-long to-do list! But sometimes, it's good to have unquilted tops hanging around. My sorority little sister had a baby girl, and I gave her a choice of tops.

She chose Summer Drinks, made from the Lynne Bob Square Pants block. The top was finished way back in July 2012.

This summer I added the "extension" borders to finish the design, and I'm so glad I did. They really finish it off.

The poor quilt went through three backings - a pink flannel that was too small, a yellow minky that was too bright, and a pink minky that was just right. It's quilted with loops and hearts, my favorite baby quilt design. Soft and delightful.

I also quilted in the baby's name, Victoria. I tried to mess with the contrast so you can see it...but pictures aren't my thing. Trust me, it's there. And I need to remember to dots my Is and cross my Ts...

First quilt with my professional labels! And a good thing, because next time I need to position it a little further out.

The fabrics are beige Dimples and an unknown FQ set that I won a while ago. The colors remind some people of cosmos, margaritas, and lemon drop martinis...or lemonade, green tea, and pink lemonade. Depending on your drinking habits in the summer.

40" square and off to its new owner!

Oh, and I drew a winner for the Make It Do giveaway! Congrats, Carol!
