It may be late, but it's still Wednesday and I just finished a quilt top that I can't wait to share! It all started with this pretty stack of Oakshotts...

That then turned into these long and skinny half rectangle triangles...

And now a finished baby quilt top :)

I'm not going to lie, I REALLY love this one (and kind of wish I didn't have to give it away!).

In fact, as I was discussing with my friend, Sarah, I even calculated how big I could make it with all of my Oakshott fabrics in this color way to see if it was worth making bigger and keeping for myself (shameful I know!).  And since I could only do a smallish throw size, I decided I should keep with my plan to give it away to the soon to be born adorable baby boy. :)

As I'm sure you often feel, it's not always easy giving our hard work away.  Sometimes they feel like our own babies, but I know it will be loved and treasured by the recipient and that makes it all worth it to me.

Thanks for stopping by, Amanda
