Drunkard's Path Baby Quilt Finished

I'm excited to finish this little quilt.  It is for my son's speech therapist.  She is AWESOME!  Their little guy is due July 16.  His dad is a high school football coach.  The colors in their nursery are greens and brown.  Something was telling me I better get it done and get it to her.  I love it when I finish a quilt a month before the deadline.  This is one of my favorite quilts that I have made so far.

Details:  The Drunkard's Path Accuquilt die for the GO! Baby was used.  Fabrics are from JoAnn Fabrics.  Circle Lord Swirls template was used for the longarm quilting (done by me).  This little quilt measures a nice 40" x 50".  Serge-Well cone (serger) thread (the cones that are regularly priced $2.19 at Joann Fabrics) was used on the top and bottom of the longarm.  There was little thread breakage with this yellowish-white color.  I am still impressed by most colors of this thread for longarm quilting.

I linked up with Let's Make Baby Quilts at Michelle's Romantic Tangle.

I'm also happy to link up with Richard and Tanya Quilts for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.
I'm also showing off this finish by joining the linky parties on:
