Finished Objects

Last weekend, our church hosted a shower for our Associate Pastor's new baby girl.  The baby was born in early June, and we were all delighted to meet her and to shower her with gifts.

As soon as I knew that this shower was taking place, I pulled out the yarn stash and got to knitting.  This is a waffle weave dishcloth pattern.  It makes a beautiful washcloth that will hold up nicely over years of washing.

One day while I was searching for something, I ran across a stack of squares leftover from my Sparkle Plenty quilt.  My first thought was to make a baby quilt.  Here it is:

I quilted lines at varying distances.  Occasionally I put in a heart.

The parents were tickled pink!
