    Here goes again. If this fails, I'll wait and get some help from a friend!

    Hope this one goes through.

    Hurray!
    Now can I just remember what I did differently from the first try.
    These are for my twin grandbabies, Christian and James ( 15 months). They use either one as is needed. Now that it is November, they are using them in their cribs. I was helping with the laundry the other day and pulled them out of the dryer. While still warm, I grabbed the two little guys and they were quite happy in the warm folds of the quilts. As a result, they played with them and snuggled down until the quilts had lost their warmth.
    I am currently piecing together an attic window quilt with fairy fabric. This will be for my 5 year old grand daughter who loves fairies. The 45 degree angle is giving me no problems at all and is working up quickly.
    I'll post that one for sure.
    C.M.

    Great job on these two. Looking forward to seeing photo of the quilt for granddaughter. Glad you aren't having trouble with the 45 degree angles.

    Really cute. I like how you used the same pattern in different colors---the same but yet different.

    Those are my favorite subjects too!!

    What great quilts---I love your fabric and pattern choice---so much "movement" to the quilts.

    I love a quilt warm from the dryer too :D
