Done!

I've been working very hard over the past few days trying to finish this baby quilt. The pressure became more intense on June 1 because the sweet little girl who is going to receive it was born on that day. She was a tiny thing weighing only 5 lbs. 9 oz. and was 18 inches long. Her name is Paige.
Here's a look at the back. I had a difficult time finding something for the back. I'm not overly crazy about this one, but it was the best I could find on short notice. Now, it's off to the post office to get it in the mail.

Excellent job. I think the backing you have is an excellent compliment to the dainty butterflies on the Bow Ties. Congrats on the newest family member.

It's a very sweet quilt Belvie and will be well loved.

That backing is lovely - just finishes off the quilt so nicely.

Yaaay, Belvie, way to go, you got it done! It looks so nice, and the backing fabric is very pretty.

I really love the backing - it is so much in the spirit of the whole quilt, both colourwise and tenderness of pattern.

Very nice! And June 1 is a great day to be born (it's my wedding anniversary). :)

I like the back of that quilt, looks just right to me. This is a very nice pattern and you did a great job.

I really liked the first baby quilt but I like this one even better. The fabric goes together so well and I really like the completely different feel of the back.

Again, a lucky baby and Mom to be getting such a special gift from the heart.

That is such a sweet little quilt - and the backing is a nice contrast - giving two different looks - I like it. I'm sure the baby will enjoy the colors.
