Ruby Quilt Finish and a Giveaway!

I bound and finished up Ruby's quilt this morning and I'm so excited! I love everything about how it turned out. I used Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for Moda with the All Framed Up tutorial found at the Moda Bake Shop. I quilted it using a meander all over the quilt. Also, with a few hits from this post I will hit 20,000 pageviews so I decided to celebrate with a giveaway! More about that later. I'm linking up with Finish it Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Which is, typically, where I get most of my hits from.

Giveaway Closed

First the pictures...

Here's a closeup of one of the corners. I took this planning on using it to show off the quilting but you really can't see it all that well, sad! It is pretty fun anyway and it was the first time that I did a whole quilt in a meander. I also love the red binding on it!

Here's the whole quilt finished, quilted, and bound. I'm in love! I can't wait until Ruby's birth and I can get a picture of her on it! I think the applique with her name in the middle is my favorite part!

I think I love the back of this one nearly as much as the front. I used the big flower fabric with the aqua background. I just adore aqua and red right now and the red binding is just so fun!
