I finally finished these quilts and managed to take pictures before sending them off.  One is for a boy and the other is for a girl.  The boy baby quilt is for a friend of mine from college and the girl baby quilt is for a former boss and his wife.

The dress pattern is one that another college friend and I made up to go in a series of fairy tale inspired quilt blocks.  The monkey quilt is a panel, but I hand quilted the details.

Here they are:
101 Dresses

Like I said, the details are hand quilted, I quilted different designs in each square. Here's a close up of one square:

The squares alternated between being echo quilted and the detail quilt, depending on the background of the square.  Here's a plain, echo quilted one:

Monkey Business:




I washed both quilts before I sent them, so they would have that wrinkly, comfy look.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Aw, I love the giraffe... and the little monkey hanging in the tree.

That must have been a lot of work, respect!

Thanks!  I was actually really happy with it when I was done.  The monkey quilt was a panel, but it gave me a chance to work on my hand quilting stitches.
