2 Finishes this Friday!

This week has been great for actually getting stuff done!

One day during nap time I was planning on folding clothes, but as I opened my closet I saw the pile of WIPs sitting on the shelf and just HAD to finish one. The funny thing is that this is a pretty small quilt that should NOT have been neglected in the pile for so long.  I got the whole thing basted and quilted during nap time Wednesday and finished the binding during nap time on Thursday.
I've had the top and back done for - dare I say - years. :/  The front is the disappearing 9-patch pattern. And the fabric is Flights of Fancy by Paula Prass.

I love the way the stripe binding turned out!

Not the best picture of the back of the quilt, but I love that my daughter was "helping" me take pictures. She brought her own camera outside and actually took a couple of good ones! And you get the idea for the back. 5 7x7in blocks to showcase the fabric from the front. I love having a good amount of white in a quilt and there isn't any on the front, so the back was just begging for all that white!
And my second finish for the week is this dress for my daughter to wear to her first day of preschool! The alphabet print is adorable and my daughter loves the ruffle on the bottom. I'm excited and oh-so-nervous for September 3rd - sending my first baby out into the world of school. She is beyond thrilled and is counting down the days!

I'm linking up with Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. There are so many awesome finishes over there already! I can get lost for hours just jumping from blog to blog checking out all the fantastic projects - which is perfect for this rainy Friday night!
