I try to avoid making the same quilt twice, but I had a lot of fabric left over from last year's triangle baby quilt. Having bought it leading up to moving, I erred on the side of caution and bought more than I thought I'd need. Conveniently, my sister's friend was expecting a girl and using the same colors for her nursery, and the triangle design just comes together so quickly, plus I had leftover triangles already cut. I used up most of the peach fabrics, so I had to sub in a few fabrics Julie eliminated from her palette. I was worried it wouldn't look as good, but I like the darker pink.

A lot of Claire's Barbie clothes are made of shiny material that frays easily, and there is usually a bit of mending for me to do when I visit. I wasn't looking forward to making an entire outfit, but one purple dress was coming apart so badly that I couldn't fix it. I brought it home and took it completely apart to use as a pattern. I wasn't sure how well it would fit, but it ended up fitting well enough. It's not particularly snug, but it's not too loose either, and a bit too big is better than a bit too small.
