#8's 1st birthday present done!

Good thing, too... the party is tomorrow!

Here are the pics.

I used a very textured brown for the binding. Blocks are paper pieced and are 3.5" finished. 







Love this little alien along the outside.

And this angel is representative of his auntie who he will not meet until he, too, passes on.
 
And the back... yes, I quilted each square separately. (Please don't let me do that again!)
 
My grandson has 2 dogs, so this backing seems appropriate.  I just hope the quilt doesn't become the dogs' bed, it's a game, and because of that I put on a hanging sleeve so it can be hung in his room and played.
So this is my Friday Finish.... I've been working on it for longer than a year, so does that still count?
 
Linking up with the Whoop Whoop (Sarah) at Confessions of a Fabric Addict (see her button on the side bar) and listed at 116, I think, on Amanda's Crazy Mom Quilts.
 
Have a wonderful weekend. (I'm going to a birthday party tomorrow!!!!)
Hugs,
Terri

  4. Great I Spy quilt as a finish. What a tour de force quilting you did - each square! Sure to be a hit. Have fun at the party, and thanks for linking up at Hexie Friday - all eye candy appreciated.

  5. How cute! What a great way to use all the fun, fussy cut fabrics. I love how you included a block for your daughter. What?!?!?! We're supposed to FINISH a project in a year or less?????? Oh No! I've been behind for YEARS now on most of my projects. Oh well, that Queen of unfinished projects really fits me.

  16. This is adorable! The way you did the novelty prints in the middle of each block, they remind me of Memory cards -- you know, that matching game where the toddlers always win!
