Pip, Pip Hooray!




  Crabby Baby began in June of 2008 when I first shared it HERE.   Three years later it progressed THIS far.  In October I actually got it basted and  ready for quilting.  Now it's all done!


A cute gift set for Mr. Creation's co-worker who had a baby boy.

It was definitely worth the wait.

Awesome finish, Stephanie. And I'm sure his parents will love it too!

It's strange how we sometimes shove stuff onto the back burner that needs very little done to it to be finished.
This is way to cute to be languishing in the UFO pile.
I adore those little crabs. What a bright happy quilt for a little one.

Sometimes it just takes an actual baby to get the job done. It looks like a really fun, bright quilt to start the kid off right.
