Synchronized squares top

A few weeks ago I finished the quilt-along top I was working on.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I just love the colorful fabrics.

This was a fun quilt to work on.  It went together fairly quickly and if you had all the time in the world to quilt, you could easily get it done in a day or two.  I took me about a month to get it done.

I have a light lime green fabric to back this with and I’m going to try to get the top, batting and backing put together in the next week or two.  I haven’t decided how I’m going to quilt it yet.  Any suggestions?

I’m feeling pretty comfortable with my mom’s friend’s (or my friend’s mom’s – same difference) sewing machine.  I really like it.  I’m going to have to re-adjust to my machine once I get back to Italy.  Although, in all reality, I’m not 100% sure how much time I’ll have to quilt when I get back anyway, especially after baby #2 arrives.  But I’m loading up on fabric to take back with me, just in case!

I also need to get labels to put on to my quilts.  Does anyone have any recommendations for quilt labels?  I’ve never used one, but I figure I’d better start!

I think it might be a boy too! At first I thought girl, but now I'm thinking you're right. Don't you worry, little boys are so sweet and you are an amazing mom. Can't wait to hear either way. You look beautiful too.
