Quilty Goodness

Sunday, I spent the day putting together two baby quilt tops.  Hoping to get them to the quilter this week before I leave for Houston.

The pattern is the same, but the fabric makes them look quite distinct.

The first is using Barnyard Buddies by Moda:

Close up is here – Barnyard Squares

The backing is a similar green fabric – with animal noise words.  Binding will be black.  The placement of the green/white squares is random.  This quilt went together quickly and very smoothly.  Are all the seams perfectly lined up?  Umm… no.  But, that’s ok, I intend this to be used and loved rather than analyzed 😉

The second is using Andover’s Castle Peeps fabric and Kona white fabric:

Closeup: Castle Peeps squares  Sorry, it is so dark!  The colors are pretty good, though.

Again, the small squares are random and the seams are not suitable for a perfectionist.  The backing is more blues with tower flags.

I’m pretty happy with the results.  I’ll get them to the quilter, hopefully this week and have them back in time for binding and Christmas gifting.

I still have a Halloween wall quilt to do….and Baltimore Halloween from last year’s quilt show.  Or who knows what I’ll find this weekend 😀
