    Nice quilts and I'm really intrigued with the colors of the second one. That's really eye catching.

    Those are both great. I too am really intrigued by the colors of the second one. Can you tell me if you used a precut fabric collection (I am thinking maybe one of the bali sets or maybe tonga or something)? I just love the colors and would really like to do something like this.

    Oh Wow! What amazing gifts. I love both patterns and the brightness of the the colors in the first but there's something about the subtleness of the second that just speaks to me also. At any rate, both are beautiful.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Both quilts are wonderful. I love the bright colors on the first one, and the color combination on the second one is very soft and beautiful.

    Both quilts are beautiful, I bet the kids are just as beautiful. I would have to say that #1 is my favorite one though.
