Sweet Baby "Peek-a-boo" baby blankie

Hi Fellow Crafters

I have never quilted before, but my sister is an avid quilter and I always love what she makes, so I decided to give it a try. Apart from been inspired by my sister there is also a plethora of very talented ladies around blogland that readily share their quilting talents.

I got the idea for the small blanket -> here ( great step by steps on how to assemble a mini quilt), and modified it to suit my requirements.

Having a few baby showers coming up in the near future I made the following tag "peek-a-boo" blanket ( so called as it can be used to play peek-a-boo with baby as suggested in the linked post).

I designed the lion piecing and decided that a matching card would just finish off the gift perfectly. I used Moda Fabrics for the quilt and core'dinations card stock for the card.

I added ribbon down the side of the card to compliment the "peek-a-boo" blankie. I stapled the ribbon along the edge of the back flap and decided that I did not like seeing the staples so I added a strip of orange card stock to the back piece to cover them.

I have not done a step by step as this POST has very good instructions. However I have included the pattern for the lion piecing and a diagram for dimensions of the "peek-a-boo" quilt (finished size 12" x 12").
