Finished and completed

Good news here, I've finished knitting socks for my son. I love this yarn. It's fun to knit with the changing colors. (Patons kroy yarn.) Green has been his favorite color since he was a baby. Don't children hate it when you talk about their baby days?

And I have completed the baby quilt that I've been making for my niece, or should I say grand-niece (to be). It's made with 7 1/2 inch and 4 1/2 inch squares and 2 inch strips. I shopped all around the Internet for some of the fabrics, and the remaining ones were in my stash. I free-motion quilted it on my sewing machine. I feel slightly guilty about this, but it seems that I have abandoned my old habit of making bias binding on quilts. I guess that I've gotten out of the habit of going through the extra effort of making bias binding.

On another topic, I received my copy of "McCall's Quilting" magazine and Tonya's blog is mentioned on page 49! http://lazygalquilting.blogspot.com/

Such a sweet baby quilt! I love what you embroidered on it.
Is that self-striping yarn in the socks? I don't know how it does that, yarn must be smarter than I thought!
