First Finish of 2010

So I have done it, I have finished my first quilt of 2010, and here it is!

The only hard part now is deciding if I keep it for my babe or give it away to one of the many babes that we have coming in all around us this year. I have a little while to decide, and I have a ton of great fabric in my sewing area waiting to be used. I have some Authentic that I would like to baby quilt with, and I just got two charm packs of Make Life in the mail, and I'm waiting on a couple new patterns as well, so we'll see.

The best part of these pictures by far is the suitcase underneath the quilt. This suitcase is going to be a showcase piece in our house once we figure out how to properly display it. My husband's father came over from Ukraine when he was around 5 years old I believe, and this is the suitcase that came with him. Since he has now passed this really is a connection for us to his very interesting past.
Amazing to think, even more amazing to have in our possession.
