Dresden Squared Quilt

Finished this about a week ago but I couldn't post pictures until the birthday girl got it delivered to her house.  The pattern is Dresden Squared by Missouri Star Quilt Company.  The fabrics are Moda Laundry Baskets (layer cake and some yardage).  I hand stitched the circles rather than doing it by machine. It requires the Missouri Star Wedge ruler. Here it is pictured in my friend's house.  Her condo is done in neutrals like taupe and shades of gray and in a more modern/traditional decor (not country) so I didn't go with a very traditional pattern.  She likes it...the chickens are ambivalent :)

Nordic Trail Vest

Finished the Nordic Trail Vest.  I'm happy with it. It's the first time I made something for me that actually fits me.  Really well written pattern.  I'd definitely make this one again.  Here's the link to the pattern on Ravelry:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nordic-trail
Yarn is Valley Yarn Berkshire in chunky from Webs.
