these are my first two quilts. my cousins 2 daughters *i babysit them, theyre my "borrowed" kids* have a combined birthday party early oct. and i really wanted to make them quilts... i finished them in october, finally got pictures of them earlier this month, and FINALLY posting something now... yeah i know, i have to work on my follow-through...
since natalie (2) is the "wild one" i thought the mishmash of colors would suit her. light pink sashing, and a light blue flowers on white for binding. my very first binding!!!!! *my lqs owner/bff's mom taught me and praised me on my corners.
* the blocks didnt match up as well as i would have hoped, but hey it was my first! i tried to camouflage it by only stitching in the ditch around each 4 strip block. love
the backing fabric! and its a really good match
for the colors on the front.
and the action shot... nat insisted josh *my hubby* be covered too. she has him wrapped around her lil pinky lol *josh was really tired and zombie-esque from work and made me crop him out.. vain!*
Hayden (5) is the girly girl. i had to
get the pink on white floral, and found the 2 pink calicos to match. its sashed in plain white cotton and bound in the light pink. fabric shot, as the ones of the quilt are off in color...
quilted with straight lines across, lining up with each block and backed with a pink and white offset grid/argyle(?) flannel. had to add a patch of the pink fabric to make the backing big enough... EVENTUALLY ill applique her initials to it.. maybe.
didnt get a picture of the back but this is an action shot.. she was making a tent and got distracted by spongebob... *the dark pink patch in the back was ALMOST centered.. eh shes 5, she wont care.)
and hayden being a ham for the camera. she told me shell "be my model" <3 love her!
at first my cousins husband put them away bc he didnt want them to ruin them *i was flattered!* but let him know theyre suppoed to be used, and now im proud to say theyre well loved!
comments? criticism? praise and advice is always welcome lol
