A couple of my friends who live overseas (Australia and Germany) had babies in the fall/early winter. I had too many quilts to make for Christmas to get quilts done for them at the time, but I finally got around to them now. I just kept them very simple.
Just ignore my feet in the pictures below.
Quilt 1: Shadow Box
This is a technique I'd been meaning to try for a while, so I took this opportunity. It was super easy and I like the effect.
Quilt 2: Framed squares
I just stumbled across this one online and decided to try it. The original pattern had nine-patches in the middle, but I just went for solid squares.
(the Canada-themed background is a bit of a joke, as we used to refer to each other by our countries of origin)
