Baby Bunting quilt

Remember a couple of week's ago, when I was asking for help finding this pattern? This is a customer's quilt, and she wanted a quilt made like it, for her daughter. For Christmas! Luckily, one of my friends knew right where to find the pattern, it's called "Baby Bunting".
So last Friday, the 3rd, the fabric arrived from my customer. (She always shops for her own fabrics, and then I put it together.) And this Friday, the 10th, this quilt was shipped back to her:

I love that it is a combination of vintage looking, and a bit patriotic, with her color choices. This quilt was tied, not quilted. It finished to about 60" x 72". 143 little fan blocks... :o)
And the backing was minky! Love the feel of that stuff, but boy, it's tricky to get laid out properly!
It had to be shipped by last Friday, because she is leaving this coming week, to go to her daughter's for Christmas... :o) I can't wait to hear what they all think of it! I plan on making myself something with this pattern, eventually... I think I would want mine hand-quilted, like the original. :o)

P.S. If you haven't yet, go HERE to enter my Christmas give away! The drawing is tomorrow, December 13th!

The quilt is lovely and you finished it so quickly! You were an angel to agree to make it with so little time. I hope you were generously rewarded!
I'm too old for the stress of dealing withcustomers anymore. That's for the young gals like yourself.
