Peter Rabbit baby quilt- finished!

The Peter Rabbit/ Beatrix Potter quilt I have been working on for our new baby boy is now finished. :-) I hand quilted all the blocks in the main part of the quilt and part of the borders, then machine quilted the corner blocks and the other parts of the borders that needed more quilting. I was planning to hand quilt all of it, but I wanted to save time since I still have the crib bumper pads to make. They will be made of the same fabric as the border on the quilt. :-)
I am now 31 weeks or 7 months along in this pregnancy. So, not that much time left! Especially considering that it's very likely that the baby will be born at least a couple weeks early. Nathanael was born 3 1/2 weeks before his due date, and he was already over 7 pounds and didn't seem like a "preemie" at all. It's exciting that the time is drawing near for the new baby to be born, but I do have quite a few things I want to get done first. Ben thinks it is taking forever, but I think the time goes by fairly fast. Haha
