Snowy Baby Quilt

I did it!!!!  I finished the baby quilt that I have been working on this past weekend while I was using up my vacation time for this year.

Here is a close up of the center block:

Here is a close up of the appliqued snowflakes:

This baby quilt is for our friends, Steve and Darlene, who are expecting their first child (a son) in early February.  Since he will be a winter baby, and since his parents also snowmobile with us, I thought it would be cool to make this snowflake quilt for them.  I know it will be appreciated!

UPDATE: My DH (dumb hubby this time) told Steve about the baby quilt.  He did not think anything of it since it is for Darlene's baby shower.  I was mad at him considering it will be Steve's son too!  Men just don't think sometimes.  Anyways, Steve was over on Tuesday and Jay wanted me to show it to him.  He absolutely LOVED it!  He also promised not to tell Darlene so at least she will be surprised about it!
