Quilt for Baby Boo -- Basted!

The last time I posted about this quilt it looked like this:

I decided to change up my plan entirely and turn it into an on-point rail fence. I used the backing fabric for the setting triangles and then decided that it was too small, so I used the last half yard of the yellow fabric as a 3 inch border.

(Clara tried to "help".)

Much better with a border! I'm planning to use the same fabric from the setting triangles for the binding too.

And now it is all pin basted and ready to quilt! I am planning to try to do some simple custom quilting on it. I am planning to do squiggles in the rail fence block, loops in the setting triangles, and loops in the border as well.

Linking up to Fabric Tuesday and Linky Tuesday!

November Wishes Block

Well, I'm not making a lot of progress on anything else, so I figured today I would show my November Wishes QAL block.

Just December to go now! I can't wait to see this one all come together! :)

Finished Quilts for Twins

They are finished! Hooray!

I managed to finish both the quilting on the purple-mint-peach quilt AND the pink-yellow-blue quilt on Wednesday, and got the bindings finished this morning.

I quilted the pink-yellow-blue quilt with a simple meander and used a pink flannel backing and a yellow binding.

For the purple-mint-peach quilt, I used a loop-de-loop meander. The backing on this one is purple and the binding is a peach fabric that I used in some of the blocks that I made.

All ready to send off to some very cute sisters!

Linking up last minute to Finish it up Friday!
