One Year Old Today!

This little sweetie is turning one today! Happy Birthday to our one and only grandbaby/grandangel. I just spent a week with her, having the time of my life. She is so good, even though the picture below shows a little crankiness. She was ready for bed right then.

It's been such a fun year with this little one in the family. I've been able to see her every two months pretty consistent, inspite of the many many miles between our homes.
Have fun digging into your birthday cake!

Little Baby, Little Quilt

Our neighbors across the street became grandparents to a tiny tiny little girl. Lilley only weighed 4 pounds 4 ounces! Baby and parents are doing fine now. yeah! I jumped at the chance to make a LITTLE baby quilt.
I just started cutting these coordinating pink and black prints with somewhat of an idea of what I wanted to do, but wasn't completely sure...

I like what 'happened'. It's a variation on the Zig Zag quilt.

I tried a little loopy flower quilting, but mostly stayed on the safe side with the usual curly loops of which I'm more comfortable.

I pieced the back using the scraps, and wanting to continue with the "use it up" theme, I pieced the binding.

I wish I could remember the name of this fabric line! They were nice to work with, I learned that black can be sweet! The light pink solid is a Kona.

OK, Also...when I washed little number-guess what? yup, you are right...the black bled! ugh! I put it through the washer 2 more times with TWO color catchers. That did the trick. No more bleeding. Whew!
