Here are a couple of quilts I've finished lately!

This is a Polaroid-style baby quilt called "Fiver's Scrapbook" that was inspired by a quilt block by Lee at Freshly Pieced:  http://freshlypieced.blogspot.ca/2012/01/january-bee-blocks.html

Here are some close-ups of a few of the blocks.  My machine quilting is pretty off-the-mark in this one... don't look too closely!

And here is the label I embroidered to go on the back.  (Fiver is the nickname for this little baby that I had for her in utero.)

And here is another quilt I made for the wedding of two friends of mine.  One of them made a joke one time about me making them a quilt to protect their bedsheets from the cats.  So I made a yellow, white, grey, and black quilt to match their three cats. 

I really wanted to use a lot of greys in this quilt, but only had one grey fabric.  I am trying to use more of what's in my stash, so I ended up flipping some of the black and white prints I had and using them wrongside-up in the quilt.  I think the technique worked pretty well!  Here is a somewhat closer shot of the stripes:

And here is the quilt label.  The title is, of course, "Sheet Protector".  Smiley

Thank you for looking in!

I've been admiring those polaroid quilts for a while now. Yours looks wonderful! I love the colors for the other one. I may have to steal that idea to use the wrong side of blacks for grays. Genius!

I love the raccoon print in the Polaroid quilt. So cute.

One is less than three.
