Brazilian Baby Quilt

I have a friend that lives in Brazil and she is expecting a little girl in the near future. I wanted to make her a baby quilt but was putting it off. I just realized I have another Brazilian friend (she sits near me at work) and she is going to Brazil in 2 weeks. So I can send it with her if I can get it finished in time. This inspired me to get my act in gear and do something about it. I found the perfect pattern at the Moda Bake Shop. I used 2 charm packs from the line Allspice by Fig Tree. I bought the sashing fabric yesterday, also Allspice fabric, on the Shop Hop with Pauline. I am really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

I have another one cut out for another friend that is having a baby but this one is a boy so the fabric choices are different. I also bought the sashing fabric for that one yesterday too. If I get it finished today I will post it later. The whole top took me about 4 hours (hard to be exact as I was watching football and trying to get this done).

Have a great Sunday!
