A New Project - Started and Finished!

last week i was contacted by a friend about a baby gift for someone we know.  after some consideration and discussion back and forth, i offered to make a quilt.  after doing so well on finishing things on my WIP list i was itching to work on something new, and this gave me the perfect opportunity.  my friend had linked to a picture of a quilt on flickr that looked super easy and was cute, too.  i used it as inspiration and modified it a bit to suit our needs.

on wednesday night i pulled my fabrics.

on thursday i started sewing my HSTs together, and finished them on friday.

i got the top completely assembled friday, then basted it and got it all quilted!

on saturday i got the binding done and got the quilt laundered.

i love how this turned out, and i have almost enough HSTs to make another that's pretty similar.  i hope the gift will be loved and treasured, too.
