Simply Retro - Retro

If you've been following along with Jana's quilt along, You'll know that I am just getting this quilt in just in the nick of time (much like my high school homework, only this is much more fun)! This quilt along has been a good motivator for me to work on my projects a little more quickly than I am used to, which is great. It's fun to have finished mostly finished projects rather than stacks of  fabrics waiting to be pieced together. I just pulled my quilt off the long arm machine, in fact, I wasn't sure if I would even get it pulled off tonight so I snapped a quick picture while it was still being quilted. 
 Luckily, my kids played nice so I was able to sneak in a few more minutes than I had planned on and was able to get it all trimmed up. I'm not going to push my luck by even thinking about the binding tonight.  And here it is! The pictures are just from my phone so they aren't spectacular, but at least in this picture you can see that the fabric is hot pink and not a weird red color like the picture above shows. 

 My mom has been working on hers too, which is a very cute light grey herringbone pattern and white. She's making hers into a baby size, just 9 blocks total. I can't wait for her to get her binding on, it will really make the quilt with the darling fabric that she's chosen. Here it is pre-quilting...
And here it is post-quilting! Don't you love it? The backing is so cute, perfect for a baby girl. The binding will make it even better.
As excited as I am to have finished up this quilt, I am even more excited to start on the next one in the book. It's very cute! Feel free to follow my blog on bloglovin to see what we'll be quilting up next!
