There's a couple I work with on a regular basis to take care of the kids in my church's nursery. They had their second child last month and I decided to make a quilt for the baby as a gift. Then, I figured I should make a quilt for the big brother (who's all of 1 1/2 years old), to be fair. Smiley

This is the quilt for the baby:




Here's the back:


It came out bigger than I was planning (about four feet square), but the parents had been looking for something they could use as a floor mat for the baby. Hooray for serendipity. Smiley

This one was for the big brother:



I did a self-binding of the backing fabric.



I'm pretty happy with how these came out and I was glad that they were happy to get them. Plus, these quilts were made completely from stash, so I'm slowly whittling down my fabric stash. Smiley

Those are both stunning.  Great job!  You coordinated fabric so perfectly; I reeeally love the colours in the first one.  How big are they?

They both look great!  Love the orderly randomness of the first one -- did you plan it out or make it up as you went along?

The one for the baby (the first quilt) is about four feet square. The other one is roughly 40 inches by 36 inches.

The randomness of the first quilt was mostly planned waterbaby. But I had to fabrics here and there as I sewed the top together to make up for all fabric that ended up in the seams. But that's par for the course whenever I take the randomness route for a quilt. I just make sure that I have coordinating fabrics standing by. Smiley
