ava's birthday quilt

I need to make a quilt for my niece's 3rd birthday, which is in less than a month!!

I want to make a quilt similar to this pattern, but it needs an oriental theme...what do you think about these fabrics together in a design similar to the above quilt??

Do you think it'll work? Or should i just stick to the momo range? hhhmmmmm i CAN NOT make a decision!

how cute is this!?!

i FINALLY made one of the fabric baskets from the online tutorial over at Pink Penguin...made entirely from scraps, which were donated (via a blog giveaway) by the lovely Katy over at imagingermonkey (THANK YOU!!)

this is the first time i have made something besides a quilt, and i really liked it...i love the colours! now, it is FAR from handles, although exactly the same length, and sewn on the same way, appear different sizes (whats with that!) and i have never boxed corners before, so they are kinda random, but still very easy to do...and it is a little messy in started off great, but then i got hooked and HAD to finish it before i went to i had arguments with myself, knowing that it was getting WAY TOO LATE to be awake, and that my son would wake up soon and want his i kept going and got clumsy and scatter brained...but the next one will be a lot better, i think! and it was SO much easier than i imagined... i really did end up making it harder than it was, so i am looking forward to fabric basket number two...

But for now, i love : )
