#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!!!!)
