welcoming my new niece . . .

My new niece is expected to arrive anytime, and I finished up her baby quilt this week.  The fabrics are a Japanese line from SevenBerry and I used my diamond ruler to cut out the top.  The bright colours are more my sister-in-laws style, and I love that it's still girly.


For the backing, I used a super-soft fleece with Tinkerbell printed on it.  It should go well with her Tinkerbell-themed nursery.


And here's another 241 tote, it should make a handy diaper bag for shorter outings.  I think the colours suit my sister-in-laws style quite well, and it was fun making this pattern with a totally different look.
