Slow Sunday Stitching -- December OMG

This embroidered crib quilt was one of my slow stitching projects this summer and early fall.  I'm caught up enough on longarming customer quilts that I squeezed it in on the longarm schedule for a sweet little finish.

 
My bottled water spilled in my sew-to-go bag a while back and made the pre-printed blue run a little.  I'm pretty sure it will come out after a cycle in the washing machine.
 
 
I'm using a soft fleece for the left over from a customer t-shirt quilt for the backing.  It will be super soft.  I am quilting it using my Circle Lord giant template board called Square Dance.  Below is a close-up of the stitching design.  I don't use this board very often.  I am getting better at slowing down on the corners so that I don't have "eyelash" tension stitches on the back.
 
 
It's my December goal to finish this crib quilt.  Check out the other fun project pledges for December at the One Monthly Goal - December Linkup at Elm Street Quilts.
 
 
I need to put another fun project into my sew-to-go bag this weekend.  I finished the cross stitch saying that is a stocking stuffer for my sister-in-law.  It will work perfect in her bathroom.  I'll need to find a little frame for it this week too.  It looks crooked.  I just took it out of the hoop before the photo.  It was not laying flat.  I was just so excited.  It was a fun project!  I see more of them in my future!
 
 
 

I'm linking up with Kathy at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Adorable crib quilt! I hate it when I get the eyelashes on the back too. Your control looks great to me.
