Lena's Baby Quilt

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I posted about the baby shower invites that I did for my sister-in-law, Lena? Well, her shower was this past weekend and so I can finally share her baby gift with you without ruining the surprise! I have done lots of little quilts, but never a real project. But since I wasn't going to be able to go out for the shower and since this is Lena's first baby, I wanted to do something special. So I made a pinwheel quilt that I found a tutorial for on V & Co.'s blog. I also used Vanessa's tutorial for binding the quilt.


It turned out lovely...not perfect...but lovely. I can't wait to meet my new little niece. We love you guys!
