This Quilt Was Made for Snuggling!

I finally finished a quilt!!!  Do you remember this quilt top?  I finished the top about a year ago.  This summer I finally got the back put together, and sent it off to the local quilter.  A week ago, I got it back and immediately got to work on the binding (it's my favorite part, eek!). 

On Saturday, I took it to my moms house (she will be fostering the quilt for me), and we got some quick pictures outside before the rain came in.

The weather has started to cool here, and the trees are changing color.  This is my favorite time of year, and its the time of year that I get excited to play with fabric again.  I took another quilt in to the quilter, and hopefully I'll have that back in the next month or so.  Until then I will keep working on piecing my long list of UFOs.

It feels great to finish something, and even though this quilt won't be living with me, it was still nice to snuggle with it for a while.  Do you snuggle with your quilts when you finish them?  I feel like it's not really a quilt until it has kept someone warm.

I hope everyone is having a great week!
