Circle of friends (and family) Quilt

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY POST*

Over a year ago, my knitting pals went on a trip to Keepsake Quilting. They decided to go on a weekend when I was trapped at work, and as a little 'we are sorry your job sucks' present, got me a grab bag of very colorful scrap fabrics.

I was able to make a pretty awesome quilt out of just those scraps. The only thing I need to add was the black and white fabric, and the fabric I used as the binding.



And another view:


A close up of the handquilting that my Grandmother did!

Then, I was having so much fun making this, I even pieced the back:


And one parting shot:



Maybe the reason I'm not pregnant yet is that all the babies up in heaven are fighting for who gets to come down and get all the cute baby stuff?! LOL. Hope you are all having a fun weekend, I know I am.

That is a beautiful quilt and so special with some work done by your grandmother. Any baby will be in a very special home with you, not to mention the best dressed in hand knit wear and warmest in beautiful quilts.
