The Last Piece - Finally!

 My niece was born almost 18 months ago. I got her bumpers and crib skirt done before she was born. It took me another year to finish her stuffed cat. Six months later, her blanket that I started before she was born(!) is done, I just need to deliver it. Can I just say finishing projects is such a great feeling?!
When I was deciding what to make for her, she said she wanted to keep with the circle theme that was in the room. I showed her some pictures of some blankets that Dana made. She liked that idea.
I added a few different details.
 Circles just stitched,
 satin binding,
 and a furry backside (which I think is the best part!).
