Adding 2

I got these little bus quilts (mostly) done on Tuesday - I just had a little bit of binding that needed to be finished Wednesday. This first one is made up of a few blocks that once again I quit part way through an event. The plan was to make 20 blocks - I made 12. Nine of them found their way into this little 36" X 36" quilt:


Even though I like the blocks, I don't think they're very kid-like. Not really whimsical or bright and fun. So I added this tossed alphabet backing to try and "kid it up". Hmm...I think I like the back better than the front!


The second one I made is mostly from leftover scraps of a bundle. I added a Kona solid and came up with this simple 40" X 40" quilt:



Now I need to get back to making those darling Countdown to Christmas blocks.


Jeez, I sure hope some of those Cinderella mice are taking care of all the Christmas things that I need to be getting done!   :)

  4. I think the first quilt is very kid-friendly! Most kids love bright, rainbow colors and that geometric block is really striking and interesting. I can see a little one tracing around the big diamonds with a finger...
