I had a nice, lazy day today, but somewhere in the middle of it I started feeling a little productive.  I don't really know how it happened, but suddenly I was motivated to finish that dratted piano key border on nephew's baby quilt.  So... I did!  

Not only that, but I kept going and prepared the batting and backing...

and then I quilted that sucker!!!  That's the great thing about baby quilts, once you sit down to do it, everything goes so quickly!

I was very brave and tried some free motion quilting.  It's not perfect, but hopefully I'll keep improving.  :)

To combat imperfection, I decided to quilt some "purposefully" imperfect squiggles down the seams and in the borders.  I kind of like it!!!

And since nephew gets a quilt, I think niece should too.  :)  And if I can find the time to put a binding on this mini quilt, she'll have an almost matching one for her Barbie dolls.  :)

Time to go continue being lazy.  :)
