The finished product!

I could NOT be more pleased with how Liv's quilt turned out!  It is fun, colorful, cheery, and coordinates with the colors in her room very nicely without really matching...  It's perfect!
As you can see, I'm getting quite the belly these days!  We're almost 33 weeks along now...
This heart detail is along the top and bottom of the border...
Check out that perfect edge AND the adorable green polka dot fabric!
This striped material is solid on the back of the quilt, and the quilting detail is this ADORABLE hearts and hands stitch.  The hands are almost the exact size of Jillian's hands right now...  Aww...
I'm not sure if you can tell in the photos, but the stitching all the quilting was done in is a beautiful multi-colored thread.  It's so perfect!

I feel like I can say (without stretching the truth too much!) that I made this quilt, but I have to give a HUGE shout out to Shere and her friend Bobbie in CA.  I mailed my pieced front off to them, and they added the teal border to the front for me, the green edging, and did the heart & hand quilting.  The attention to detail and love that went into this blanket is obvious!  Thank you so much ladies for being such a huge part of creating this blanket- I love it, and I'm sure Liv will feel the same way!  :)

The quilt (and gorgeous pregnant woman holding it) is absolutely beautiful. I wish I had the talent (and patience!) to make a quilt like that! Congrats.

What a beautiful job you all did on this baby quilt! I forwarded the pictures on to my friend who has made a few quilts...I know she'll appreciate the excellent job!

Nancy, you're really getting big, but still have that terrific smile! Hope everything continues to go well for you all.
