Finally Finished - Lisa's Baby Quilt!

I'm so relieved!  I finally finished Lisa's baby quilt.  I made the top a month ago after learning about this tutorial from She Can Quilt, in which she shows you how to piece curves easily and quickly.  I always loved Drunkard's Path, but I hated pinning and cutting the pieces. Once I learned this technique, this quilt came together very quickly.  Finishing the quilt, though, is another story, but I didn't have a choice since Lisa will be on maternity leave after Friday.

The arrangement of the blocks was inspired by this quilt that I found on Flickr by Sewcraftyjess:

I love this bright version, but Lisa requested the colors for her quilt.  She doesn't want to know the sex of her baby until it arrives, so everything needs to be gender-neutral.  I never understood that since I read endings of books in order to decide whether or not to read it, but hey, whatever the mom wants! 

Like my other baby quilts, the backing is made of fleece, and each block is 5".

Hope Lisa's baby enjoys it!
