quilt pictures!

This first quilt is the quilt I made for a coworker's baby. It was from a kit that I bought thanks to R. We were at JoAnn's one day and she grabbed it while I had my back turned and she put it in the cart. R loved quilting almost as much as I do, or at least she likes to sit on my lap while I am working on something.

This is the quilt I made for R's Big Girl Bed! when we converted her crib to a toddler bed. Not long after we realised we'd need the crib again and I started a twin size top, but this one is sweet and I did get it on her bed for a few months! She loves this quilt for playing "where's R?" and having picnics on! It's cool that she can use something with so much imagination!

This is the quilt I made for one of my girlfriend's daughters. I really like it and think it might even be quilt show worthy, but I don't know if I am THAT good yet. It's a fairly simple pattern but it is so fun! As I was making this one I noticed the colors in teh black that I like more than yellow and green. There's a lovely pink, a deep red, a thoughtful blue. Wait, can colors be thoughtful...well you know what I mean. There is another green. We could have found one of those for one of the two yellows, but M picked out the colors and I just went with it. Actually, if I remember correctly we found the yellows and green first and then the black that had them in it! The backign is from one of my regulars who used to make clothes for a private label, it's a soft yellow sweatshirt like material. I just love using something strange, but soft for the back. Not what one would expect.

This is the quilt I made for R's baby dolls. I made one with the fabric left over from the previous quilt for my friends daughter too (with some of the other colors I noticed too) This one is 28 inches by 20 inches. Not huge, but cute! For little girls I like to make something to go along with their quilt. Now I do know that this one does not match the quilt I made for R, but I didn't have any left over fabric, or rather not enough to make a doll quilt, but I did have this left over from when I made a quilt for another friend's daughter. It's sweet and R likes to use this as a "kite" or rather a cape but she doesn't quite get the difference.

And just for fun, here's my sweetie asleep on my bed!

Theyll lovely quilts and the black/lime one really pops! How lovely that your sweet baby like to help you make them. Let's hope that stays with her.
