It was a fun project to work on together with Austin - we'd turn on a Psych episode while we pinned and sewed and took lots of breaks for my poor pregnant back. It was fun to do something new and semi-challenging, but doable. (Thanks Suzy and Aly for lending us your sewing machines!)
The quilt has been finished since just before Jack was born, but I wanted to make sure it got documented!

and not as curly with the dry winter air

...I can't believe I don't have a picture of the finished front side, but I'm too lazy to go get a picture at the moment so I'll have to post one later. Imagine the most perfect, beautiful quilt you've ever seen and you've pretty much got it : )
EDIT: Here's what it looks like on our bed - it's so fun sleeping under something we made, full of so many memories!
