    Two quick quilts for children's gifts

    A local family was asking for help with Christmas gifts for their children. I volunteered to make quilts. Here they are, simple but still cuddly. They are for a boy and a girl.

    Here is the front and back of the girl's one. The back is a cozy flannel.

    This is for the boy. It has blues clues, sports, dogs and other boy stuff.

    I love the fabric I found for the back!

    Thanks for looking.

    I agree with you on the backing for the boy's quilt. It's great.

    I love them both! The kids will, too. You are Santa Claus to them...a great job and a great feeling.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Nicely done. The fabric and colors are so appropriate for a girl and a boy.

    kenmoregal, these are great. I think they will quickly become favorites! I gravitate to patchwork. I just love it. It's a great quick go to pattern!!

    both are awesome... did you FMQ on a long arm or a DM? just curious as to how much time spent on each one.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    This is what Christmas is all about, doing for our "neighbors".
