This weeks Finishes


I finally finished the baby quilt for my assistants first grandchild.  It's going to be a girl.



I so fell in love with it and really didn't want to give it up.


That doesn't usually happen to me.  I make quilts for the sense of accomplishment rarely for me to keep.


But I really, really had a had time handing it over.


And the back is hot pink with white polka dots.


Again with the twisted picture. ....The bag with the circles in the background is mine from the Nancy Drew Hop from a while back.  My friend a relatively new quilter wanted to make one with a little help from me and my leftovers.  We have been talking about this for what seems like forever.  Well yesterday was her birthday and I just had to get this done on my own.  She was so thrilled.  I am not sure  if she was happier that she had the bag in her possession or if she was thrilled to just get an item off her to do list.


I had some scraps left over from the lining so I whipped up a gift card holder.


I also included a couple of REAL Nancy Drew books and a Dunkin Donuts card.


 
All in all she was pretty happy with her gifts.
