Happy Colors for the Babies

When I went in the shop to teach a class the other day, these beautiful happy colors were waiting for me on my shelf in the back room.

Char Werner made this lovely quilt to donate to the Mountain Baby Blankets cause, and had dropped it by the shop one day when I wasn't there. What a wonderful surprise that really brightened my day, and made me smile! Thank you Char!! I love the fresh colors, and the size is great for a larger child (which they also have a need for).

This is a quilt that I've made with my One Hour Crib Quilt pattern that uses a panel for the center, so it makes up super quick. I have more of this fabric, so some of these will go out in my next box being shipped to the Christian Appalachian Project.

My friend Mary Nielsen of Keep Me In Quilts did the adorable quilting on this one, and I finally got the binding finished.

Mary quilted in little hands all around the borders for such a nice touch! I'm afraid the next quilts I make won't be quilted quite as nicely ~ most likely will just be my signature all over stippling.

Since we are working on filling a new box to ship, I pulled this fabric out that's been in my stash a while, and will sneak in another little quilt as time permits ~ sometime it's nice to just do something quick and easy that makes you smile :)

Enjoy the day!

I wish I was able to master machine quilting. I don't have space (or the money) to have a long-arm and it's so expensive to get someone else to do it, so I can't do it often. The quilts you showed here are such fun!
