Here are 2 of my latest quilt top finishes: one shown above, and one shown below. These measure about 47" x 47." The backings are Kaffe Fassett prints. I'm listing them as "wall quilts/baby quilts." The fabrics are a mix of florals and geometrics, not juvenile prints, but I think they'd be pretty for a baby girl.
When my first son was born, my sister Lynne thought the baby sweaters in the stores were too babyish (duh!) so she knitted a navy and white striped sweater that she thought had a more masculine look. It did look sharp on the little guy too. Now he's 29, and 6'5" tall. I wonder if she's going to knit him a sweater for Christmas!
Yesterday I finished this scrap quilt (below). It reminds me of the World Quilt that we made earlier this year (see sidebar). It's got everything: retro, modern, florals, dots, novelty prints...even some cute dogs. The quilt measures 45" x 57." The strips were cut 1.25" wide. Binding was made from 5 different prints, in keeping with the "scrap" theme. There are 220 pieces total, in case you were wondering. :)
