They're Finished!



I started these quilts back in November when we purchased the twin toddler beds for Little Ms. A and Channy. I thought it would be a nice touch to have quilts in the same color scheme and theme. Green for Channy, pink for A.

As you might have guessed, one thing led to another and there were long stretches of me NOT working on these quilts. I also decided to do the appliqué with a ragged edge (there was no way I was going to seam them into the background) and then hand quilt around the edges.


Of course I had to hand bind them too. I was never good with a thimble and I think I have a permanent numb spot on my right middle finger. But I am pleased with the results. Below is a detail of Channy's quilt with the embroidered deer (he's a huge deer fan).

I am even more pleased with the fact that both of my little ones adore their quilts and use them each night.

Still on the path...

Those are ABSOLUTELY fantastic! I love how you did the applique... it totally sets off the design! E thinks so, too, of course. You inspire me.

great quilts, this is something that I would love to learn to do one day. Some of these quilts can be kept as heirlooms. Fabulous job.

I really love your quilts! I like the idea of not finishing the edges! I think you have inspired me to try that!
