It's COMPLETELY finished!

I finally got one of my Christmas gifts COMPLETELY finished and I LOVE how it turned out!!! :) I quilted this for my 1 yr old nephew, Gabe for Christmas. A very simple and bright quilt. I had 1 1/2 yards of the turtle fabric and I just sewed a border around it, because I didn't want to cut the turtle fabric up. I quilted it a week or two ago, finished the binding last night and.......sewed these cute little animals onto it!!!
This idea came from the DVD "Pajama Quilter Reloaded" In the dvd she gives you the idea of attaching tiny stuffed animals on quilts for kids. This is the first time that I have tried it, but I think it will be perfect for the little one to play and cuddle up with.

Makes me feel that my day is starting off good!!! Here it is 8am and I have one gift completely finished. Now I'm sure the rest of my day will not be that successful! :) I have to make trip to town in a bit. I have to run to the grocery store...again. I had everything bought and ready for baking. Then last night I was putting laundry in the dryer walked back in here and Richard and Hunter were EATING the Butterfinger candy bars that were to be crushed and sprinkled on top of a cake that I planned on making!!! I also need to pick up some extra milk and stuff too.
