    Great Niece and Nephew Quilts finished!

    Here's my two quilts for my niece's two children. She just had a baby girl and big brother is 5. The baby gets the minkee one and the boy gets the Lorax one. I did FMQ with my Bernina 830 on The Lorax quilt. Was good practice! I also made a birth announcement...pic isn't great but it turned out really cute. Enjoy.

    Two very nice quilts. I made a minkee quickly for my little grandson with monkeys and he calls it his "minkee monkey". I'm sure your loved ones will love you forever with these special gifts.

    God Bless you all.

    They're both cute but I really love the Lorax...monkey wrench, right? Must put that one on the "to do" list! And the birth announcement is great!

    The quilts are terrific and the birth announcement for the tiny one is beautiful.
