Piper's Quilt & Stuff

My sister had a baby in February.  I wasn't sure what to give/make/get for her.  It's taken me this long to finally figure it out.  I made her a quilt.  Surprise huh?  LOL  Anyway, I got a tumbler (trapezoid) die that works in my sizzix so I didn't have to sit there and cut out endless trapezoids.  They're a bit smaller than the template I made.  The template made a 5" finished tumbler.  The die makes a 4" finished tumbler.  The corners match up SO MUCH better when you use something that's uniformly cut!  I was able to cut all the tumblers for this quilt in under 30 min!  Yes, that right, one episode of Dora! 

Anyway, I wanted to do pink for her since Piper is her first girl.  I found the great fabrics at my favorite store- Joann's.  I love the combination of pink and brown and white too.  I hesitated with the white but I think it works.

Piper's burp cloth made from scraps from her quilt..  The back is white flannel.

I love making baby quilts and stuff.  They go so fast and always turn out adorable.  :)
