it's finally (almost...) done!

remember this post? more than a year ago? yeah. 

I finally finished sewing the last 6 blocks onto the top yesterday, and I fully plan to back and bind it today. I'm going to skip on the batting I think - mostly because I don't have any handy and I want to get this finished for heaven's sake!

it's a bummer that my fabrics don't all match but since I managed to make this almost entirely from my stash (I think I bought a grand total of 3 fat quarters) I'm pretty okay with it.  It is happily under our tree now, until I drag it back out and pin the finishing touches on. 

whew!

Congrats on another boy. Do you have a spare brother for Ben? Now that we are legally, lawfully, and perfmantely DONE having children, I suppose that would be impossible...

(PS We're not advertising that to the familia so don't mention it on our blog.) ;)
