    Baby girl quilts finally in the mail

    I asked for some ideas for quilting these a while back, so am posting what emerged.

    The first one is my favorite -- not quite random, bright colors. It is the one I was nervous about giving to an artist.

    The second is an I Spy with all kinds of characters. Down the backing is a sliceof fabric with cans of bug spray, which fits my sick sense of humor..

    I love them both!!! On the first one the colors are so beautiful together and WHAT is the fabric in that wide inner border....looks like a landscape fabric? I've been looking for a panel or fabric like that to do an attic window with. The I Spy is great....and love the fabric on the back too! I'll bet they'll both be greatly loved!

    That inner border is a Monet garden made for Hancock Fabrics. I tried to find more of it, but could not (I have had it as long as 10 years). Thanks for your thanks!

    Your quilt is great! I DO want to add a word of caution...make sure you insure the quilts when sending. I just sent one to my niece in Gt. Falls, MT....and it was STOLEN off her front porch!!!!!!!!!!! And of course, I didn't insure it...any of you who live in that area...keep an eye out for a hot pink, large center, Sun Bonnet Sue quilt that may have come into someone's life without explanation....and then let me know! I'm really upset about it! It may still have her name appliqued in large letters down the side "Sidney"...Thanks!
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    Great quilts! So different from each other. Your artist friend will love hers and the I Spy Quilt is always a winner ...

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    The bug quilt with the bug spray on the back cracks me up and the first quilt is just so bright and cheery!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I neglected to say these are for fraternal twin girls, so I made them quite different from each other.
