Baby Quilt Finish

We have friends who are expecting their first baby in August...
A Girl.

You know that meant a baby quilt needed to be made!

The top has been finished for a while,
and I finished sewing the binding on it today.

A bright, fun, happy quilt for a new little girl.

I quilted "modern" flowers on it and am pretty pleased
with my efforts.
(Just don't look too closely! :D)

As I have mentioned recently, making the backing is my least favorite
part of quilting. I didn't have enough of the lavender fabric for the back,
so decided to use some of the extra squares and HST's to make it big enough.
I have to say, I love the back!

It's difficult to see, but I had made the backing longer then I needed,
so I was able to cut some binding strips from the extra.
The binding has little sections of the squares and HST fabric interspersed
along the way.

I am making progress on the other baby quilt I am making.

The triangles are all sewn together...

...and it's trimmed.

Now I need to sew the borders on to this.

Aren't those daisy's just too cute and happy!
This little quilt makes me smile.

The baby quilt is just darling - so bright and happy. Aren't pieced backs a fun surprise?

That is beautiful. I think that is the same line of fabric that I used for a quilt for my granddaughter. It will be treasured.

Is that first quilt from Me and My Sister's line? I love the fun bright colors. That triangle quilt is definitely fun and made me smile too at the daisies!
