    Kayak on the Lake and the Triple Irish Chain.

    My dd is getting the first--she wanted unsymmetrical swirls to represent paddles dipping in the water. I think Jill found the perfect pattern for that.

    For the Triple, I wanted calm--and nothing is more calming than the outdoors/nature to me, so I picked a leaves design, but asked her to leave out all the quilting inside the leaves so nothing was tight. She knows what I like-no close quilting. I love it.

    Binding for Kayak will match the border. I'm undecided on the Triple... there's really only a few choices: blue or green. :roll:

    Thanks for looking.

    Ooops--I should have removed the thread and lint.

    Nine flannels make the back (dd always requests flannel backs).

    I didn't quilt them!! The quilter did!! :-D Her pricing makes it so worth it to not have to do this myself--$144 total for both!

    Remember my style? I use paper with a traced on designs and only attempt to mess up baby size tops and wall hangings. :lol:

    They're beautiful- I love the fabric choices in both (probably because they're my favorite color combinations!). You're lucky to find such a great quilter who is so reasonable too!
