One of two finished!

Besides weddings, we have a few new babies coming to join my extended family. They are keeping me busy making quilts! So just in time to celebrate one of the anticipated arrivals, I finished up the quilt and had a cute photo session!
We took a trip down to Morris, IL to meet up with my sister and brother in law and since I needed to document my quilt I thought it would be fun and different. 

So we headed to one of the local parks and took some pictures!
In several locations along the canal stood silhouettes sculptures. 
How perfect! Momma holding her baby carrying the baby's quilt!
I think they may be ready for a picnic and some playtime in the park Ü

Another location had this boy and his horse sculpture.
The block is a disappearing 9~patch. The main fabric is from a line called Gingham Safari which I happened to find here, Kona White, and some pinks and gingham from my stash. 
It is quilted using an elongated zigzag stitch on my machine. 
All labeled and ready to be gifted!
