Tuesday Finishes

I was a machine Friday night and finished up three quilt tops that have been sitting in various stages of finished for the last 2 years.  The pink, red and aqua one should have been a 5 year old's birthday present...she's going to be 7 in the fall.  Thank goodness she is patient!

I struggled with this pattern.  She loved the dogs, girls on swings and the scooters and requested this quilt.  I ordered the fabric and to say it drove me insane that there were girls on swings upside down was an understatement.  You make a bunch of blocks and then rotate them.  I remembered that she loves the fabric and it wouldn't matter to her if the dogs were upside down or not.  So I sewed the last 4 rows onto the quilt top and it's finished.  I am waiting to finish up 2 more quilts before I drive them to my quilter 1.5 hours away.   The fabric is Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey. 

I had this quilt kit sitting around for the last 2-ish years as well.   The fabric had been cut and sitting in the pretty bag that it came in.  My youngest has already staked her claim to this quilt.  The fabric is Dilly Dally by Me and My Sister Designs. 

My little sister from my sorority in college is having a baby boy in August and I made this quilt for Baby R.  I made the same quilt for my husband's cousin's baby earlier this year.  I love Bungle Jungle and the fun elephants.  This one will be backed in grey and bound in blue. 

I have some Posy by Aneela Hoey to make a doll quilt for Baby R's big sister.  Every big sister deserves a baby doll quilt too!

Love the Sherbet Pips quilt. I have a stash of this fabric line and have not been brave enough to use it yet. You have inspired me. Thanks.
