Steady Progress

I seem to be plugging along, getting quilting time here and there.  It's not yet all quilting all the time, but I'm working on it.  I pieced another baby quilt over the weekend.  It's a bit BUSY.
 It's still busy, when you're up close and personal.  I thought of putting dots on the back, but that might be just a bit much.
Remember the scraps I pieced while on retreat?  They were leftovers from an unsuccessful challenge entry.
 I kept thinking it needed a pelican.  Last night, I pulled out the brown paint and painted one on.
 This morning I picked out some nice variegated King Tut thread...
 And then I started quilting.
 I love the fabric I chose for the back.  It seems to have lined up quite well.
 I trimmed it, and added facing.
And the next thing I knew, it was finished.  Well, it still needs a sleeve and a label, but it's pretty close to done.
Yes, I think the pelican was just what it needed.  Cross one more thing off the list.  woohoo!  :)

Yep - a bird on the piece is perfect.

And..the baby won't care that the quilt is a little busy. I think it's fun and spunky.
