Two small quilts finished

nana24July 23, 2008

My DGD wanted a new "blankie" as her old one is getting ragged. She helped some but as an 8 year old her main interest is not sewing.

Is is done in the flip and sew method-putting the batting, backing and top on in one seam. We used flannel for our batting.

Then I sewed together scraps for the binding. The middle square is the cats-paper pieced;

I think it was Vicky who shared that pattern. If I have the wrong person, sorry, I'm doing this from memory(which isn't always the best :)

Closer look

This little quilt is made using the mystery block that Grace aka amazingcm challenged us with back in Jan.

I had made the blocks and put them together but machine quilted it and used scraps for the binding again this week.

another shot

Thanks for looking

Very nice and I recognize a former lotto block there in the center of the first one!

Thanks, Vicky. I thought you were the one who shared the kitty block but I didn't remember why.

Both are nice. I like the cats. I tried that block after Vicky posted how to do the lotto block. I had planned to do more of them. But hey, you know how plans are. You get sidetracked a lot of times LOL.

Great job. The Kitty quilt is very pretty, the fabric is just right. I bet your DD loves it. I like the bright colors in the second one. Good use of the fabric. TFS. Jayne

Very nice. I remember when Grace gave us directions for that surprise block. I copied the directions for the future. I was just amazed how much fun it was. Deanna

Love them!!! I need to get more creative with my binding, yours is so coordinated with the quilt.
Binding is one of my least favorite parts so I just sew it on LOL!!
