Baby Quilt Finish


Well, little baby Ethan didn't have to wait too long after all.  I finally got his quilt finished yesterday and he is only about a week old.  




















Bright and fun fabrics, hand quilting and a really cute backing ("Whiskerville Yarn" from Blank Fabrics) make this baby quilt my favorite so far!  (I say that every time I make a baby quilt!)

Another Peek at Wordless Wednesday

I showed you some black and white and brights the other day on Wordless Wednesday, and now I have something made from those gorgeous fabrics.  I love using black and white prints that are reverse images of each other.  This is from a line called "Zoomin" by Clothworks.














I found these great brights by Timeless Treasures in my stash.


























When you have such beautiful fabrics you really don't need a complicated pattern, so I just used some 4-patches and solid blocks.
























What turns it into a very cool quilt, though, is the border fabric.  This cool print has all the colors I needed and I love the wiggly stripes!


























Now I just need to get it basted, quilted and bound so the little baby for whom it's intended can love it!

Halloween I-Spy

Do you remember the Halloween I-Spy quilt I made?  I blogged about it here.



 I was contacted by a gal who blogs about I-Spy quilts asking my permission to post about it on her blog and today she did.  Check it out -- http://ispyquilts.blogspot.com/
