New baby quilt

As promised here are the pics of the new baby quilts.

The boy one is based on Crafty Mummy's very quick quilt here. I can confirm a quilt in 2 evenings (or so). Looks super cute.

The second is another Lintott quilt from Two from One Jelly Roll Quilts
I think that the white makes the pink fabric just pop. Now all I have to do is quilt it, I need to pluck up the courage to free motion quilt the whole thing......

Baby quilt from last year

 Looking through my photos and blog I realised that I did not post final pictures of the baby quilt I made for my good friend M and her little one baby cutie. He's 9 months now and got the quilt when he was 3 weeks old. So I've been very slow about posting this.

Anyhow, here goes. It was my first quilt with a pieced back, a bit difficult to line up when pinning and it was pinned twice. I'll get better with practice. The back is from a Lintott book (here's fishpond's link)  and the front centre section from Heather Peterson's book Let the good times roll (here's her blog). The fabric is Love U by Deb Strain for Moda. So so cute. I just had to use the alphabet blocks somehow. It's a bit big for a baby quilt but will keep a toddler cosy! And it's educational too, which Aunty Di always approves of....

The jelly roll came with some pink and girlie fabrics that baby cutie's dad would not approve of, which I have turned into a baby quilt for friends who are due in May. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
