Triangle Quilt Complete

I can hardly believe it myself!  After almost a year of putting this little quilt off, I finally sat down and completed it!

The quilt came out okay.  Not quite how I had first imagined it to be.  But I think the little girl it is going to will still love it!

On the back, I put some of the extra blocks and utilized one of the natural triangles as my quilt label.

 Feels great to finally be able to check this off my WIP list!  Now to pack it up and mail it off!

Last Minute Party GIft

Well hello!  Do you remember how I was invited to a baby shower 3 days before the event?  I whipped this quilt up for it.

Anyhow, we were invited to the now one year old little girl's birthday party on Thursday evening with the party being held that Saturday.  That gave me roughly one day to come up with a gift!  Aack!!

So what did I come up with?  My thoughts - on overdrive - began running through things that a one year old could enjoy but that I could finish in time.  Bibs, a handmade puppet, until finally it hit me!  I cut  48 5x5 inch squares in yellows and pinks.  The letters of her name in a chocolate wool felt.  And wallah!!  Fabric blocks!

They were quite the hit with my little ones, as well as at the party.
