Quilt for Mrs. Salgy

This is the quilt I chose to make for Mrs. Salgy  it is from the Moda bake shop.  You can see the recipe here:
http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/pinwheel-baby-quilt.html#more.  The picture above is from their site.  I will add a picture of the quilt I made soon.
I've added one more row of pinwheels to make it longer and have chose a pink, brown and green pallet for the color scheme.  She loves red most of all but also loves pink and purple so I think she will love this.  On the back panel I've places 15 hearts for all her helpers to sign.  I also decided to have it professionally quilted by Betty at http://www.shadywoodquilts.com/.  I had her do another quilt for me and she did a fantastic job.  I think this will make it more special.  I've already dropped it off with Betty so in the next few days it will be done and I will post a picture for you to see.  I was a bit concerned I would not get it finished in time for her to see it but I think I've made it!

This quilt is made of cloth and thread
To place upon your little bed.
It's not an heirloom-just to keep,
But to lay upon as you count sheep.
Or perhaps the floor's the perfect place
For a doll and teddy picnic space.
This quilt can be anything you can dream-
From superman's cape to the robe of a queen.
Pretend it's a raft adrift at sea,
Or just cuddle up when you watch TV.
So use it up and wear it out-
I promise I won't yell or pout.
Just tell me when its days are through,
And I'll make another, just for you.
