Mermaid Quilt Finished

I finished up the binding on L's baby quilt today.

I'm so happy with it, and happy to finish one of my bigger projects.
Some specs:
*Heather Ross Mendocino fabrics (mermaids and swimming girls and seahorses and octopi)
*Moda Snippets fabrics (orange dots and grid)
*rick rack :D
*hand dyed aqua and deep oranges
*peach baby corduroy back and little bit on the front
*a few other fabrics too
*quilted with waves and fishies and a few swirly lines, mostly in aqua thread but some orange too. Her name is quilted on there as well.
*37.25"x45.25" before washing and drying; 35.25"x43.25" after. I used Warm and White batting

The stitch work on that quilt is amazing and of course the baby is adorable. I love the shot with the baby's little cute hand reaching out.
