Baby Quilt Finish

Yes, I have a finish but I don't know if I can consider it a 2010 or 2011 finish, and NO, it's not on my UFO list for the BPF Challenge but it's a finish, and that's all I care about!
My nephew and his wife had their 3rd child back in December and named her Kaitlyn. Since she has 2 older brothers I knew that she would need her own "girly" quilt. I used some 30's polka dots and prints for the blocks and a purple polka dot for the back. My friend Sandi did the quilting and if you look real close at the up close picture you can see that the quilting is baby bottles, pacifiers, baby pins etc. Sandi did a great job and the quilt should have been mailed off to Florida for the baby but I needed to finish tacking down the binding...which is one of my least favorite things to do.
BUT, it's done and if weather perm
its, it will be in the mail no later than Thursday.
Here's a picture of the finished quilt and a close up of the bottle quilting.
