Smile Lego Quilt and Christmas Quilt

I haven't been posting much lately, but I have been looking at the beautiful quilts posted here. This time I have a couple of quilts I made as Christmas gifts to post, for you to see. I hope that you like them. The first one is a Lego quilt for my DGS. It's what he asked for this year (he's 5 now). Thank to tips from our QB members, I found a "go-by" so I was able to design it, and a hand-printed Lego fabric online to use for the outside border. My LA did a large stipple on it and it turned out great.

The second one I made for my dear friend, Suzie. It's made mostly from scraps I've kept over the past 25 years or so, but they all seemed to go together well. She was so happy when I gave it to her, it made it more special to me. It is quilted with what we call "Cindy Lou Who" trees, because they look like the trees in the "Grinch" story. Please forgive all the junk around it, I had to lay it on the floor in the sewing room.
