Say Hello to my ABC Quilt

I finished hand quilting and binding this American Jane ABC quilt over the weekend! It's all washed and dried. I love how this quilt came out. It measures 40" x 57" finished -- perfect as a crib quilt. This will soon be gifted. I know the recipients will love it and put it to good use. 

This is the first quilt I started and finished since having our baby.  I am amazed by my strong will to find a little bit of time here and there to work on this. I guess this is what happens when you are in love with a hobby.

I accidentally nipped the quilt top when I was hand quilting this; I know, I almost fainted. I covered it with a label and actually love the way it looks.

I used grey and neutral thread throughout this quilt and was very happy with grey. I will try that color again in the future. I took a million photos, so here is one more.

Before I got to the text, I was thinking how CUTE the label was. Great solution!
