Toddler Quilt

This little quilt will be gifted this Christmas.  I also picked up a cushy small baby doll and will make a matching doll quilt for it.  It seems I will do anything to avoid finishing my own projects.




Here is the back.  It is a pretty fleece.  I did lots of quilting on it.  I will call it  modern style quilting .... (doing what I want to) crosshatch diamond/rectangle shapes in the flower print areas and straight line quilting in the checkerboard area, a splash of serpentine.


I'm linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River  and  Quilt Story  for  Tuesday Linky's.  Hop on over there to see what everyone else is creating today.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CCQ # 12 & 13

Finished up these jelly roll quilts for the quilt club charity missions.  Another member, Kathy B, stitched the tops together.  They are not very large and it was a fast and fun process.


CCQ # 12


























CCQ # 13

That's it for charity quilts this year.  I need to concentrate on some of my finishes.  I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times  and Connie at  Freemotion by the River  where you can see what other quilters are creating today.
