Finishing It Up

To WIN one of these fabulous bundles, go here!  THE DRAW IS TOMORROW!

I got to spend a day with Jenni this week and I met Baby Tucker!  My girls were wild for him, and so was I.  He is a fat-faced nugget of love.  

Today I'm hoping to finish up a quilt I made for him.  I'm hand sewing the binding, and I'm not quite done yet.

I used a paper pieced pattern from Kristy at Quiet Play.  It's in her Craftsy shop.  I'm no expert in paper-piecing, so this pattern stretched me. I made some glaring errors, but I love the results anyway.  I KNOW that the points don't match up, but you can only unpick and re-stitch so many times before you stop caring.  Blue rocket- I'm looking at you.

Which one of these is not like the others? (hint: it's the yellow one. Whoops!)  

I first saw this pattern at Snips Snippets.  She used the Rocket Launch Club in white to fussy cut little astronauts.  I loved the idea so much I blatantly copied it.  The prints are all from Sarah Jane's Children at Play.  

Linking up with Amanda Jean.

  3. I think your blocks look perfect!! I giggled at the blue rocket comment :) Seriously, such an adorable quilt - no one but you will notice any 'mistakes'
