Another finished quilt....pretty much in love with this one:)

I SOMEHOW managed to finish another quilt....I was on a bit of a time crunch.  This one is for Pink A Night To Remember, which is an auction for Breast Cancer that my Aunt helps put on.  I donated 2 quilts last year, but only managed one baby quilt this year.  Actually I tried to work on a different bigger quilt, but I kinda ruined this is what they got this year.  ANYWAY...
The fabric is one of my favorites, Riley Blake, but I am not sure what it is called.....Delicious is what I call it:)  Is it not super cute boy fabric????  Love it!!!

I grid quilted it....I promise to try free motion again someday.  I did do something a little different this time though.  NO TAPE...I used the little extension do-hickey that goes on my walking foot.  Worked like a charm. 

The backing is my favorite...I pretty much love the stars!!!

It matches baby E's room pretty well....too bad it can't stay there:)  I promise the A is coming is on order. 
The pattern is from THIS book.  Thanks Marcie!!!  This is the same pattern I used for Baby E's quilt...different fabric though.   If I EVER actually finish it I will share a picture.
This might be my last accomplishment for a while, so I am sitting here enjoying the finish....kinda like I just won a state championship....small things:)

I love it! I had to come look at it again! I don't know how you do that grid quilting. I want to learn, yoda! :) Go ahead and enjoy yourself, champ - you deserve it!
