    Very nice but I'd be afraid they'd get wrecked camping; they're so neat!

    Very awesome quilts, and thanks for the link.

    I was wondering if you used batting also, or just the top and flannel. I'm making two baby quilts with flannel for the backing, but was wondering if I should use batting.

    Thanks

    Love the tent quilt. The tents are great. The zigzag fabric is perfect. Great job!

    I like the way you have moved the sun in each block to show it slowly going into nighttime. You did a great job and the kids sure look happy with them.

    Yes, I used batting as the flannel was more on the thin side.

    LOL ~ this was one of those "happy accidents". The blocks were pieced from scraps I had in my stash & there was not enough of any of the blues to make all of the blocks so I had to find a way to make it all flow.

    I love your idea of camping quilts. Both are very nicely done! I like that you changed the position on the sun, and even made a moon, in the quilt with the tent. Thanks for sharing.

    I thougt the same thing when I saw it. Those happy faces are what it's all about! Thanks for the pattern link - I really like that one and saved it to pdf for future reference.

    Oh I am dying...you let them camp with them?? All that work for camping in the dirt?? Maybe I'm too much of a neat freak.

    Glad you are letting them enjoy them and do what they want with them!! You're a good grandma!
