Birthday Presents for Chelsey

My granddaughter picked out the animal prints for this quilt, but let me pick the additional fabrics, for a total of 20. The pattern is Birthday Presents from "Take Two and Add a Few" by Atkinson Designs. Each fabric is used twice in the quilt top, once as the corners of each block, and again as the squares. The binding is a different fabric, and the backing is yet another.

I decided the Thousand Pyramids puzzle ball would be a perfect companion project because it takes 20 triangles. That pattern is from Patchwork Puzzle Balls by Jinny Beyer. Chelsey will be 16 on Friday, and has seen the fabrics, but not the finished products.
