Baby Quilts

I have an order for three baby quilts.  I really like doing baby quilts, because they go faster than a full size quilt, they move easier in the machine, and quilting the sandwiched pieces is way easier.  A couple of years ago, while on a shop hop, I picked up several "baby" themed prints, panels, and fabric lines so that I would have them on hand when I needed to make another baby quilt.  So, I dug these prints out and found that I could make three easy peasy baby quilts.  Here are two that I have started.  The first one, I am waiting for some fabric to arrive in the mail to finish the border, but the other one is done, and  this afternoon, I got it quilted and the first step of the binding put on, I will have pics of the completed one in the next few days, when I can get the second step of the binding hand sewn down.  Probably will get done at the trade show this weekend.

This pattern is called "Newton" by Clothworks.

This is just some flannel and minky squares done in primary colors, it will have red minky backing, and red flannel binding.  I quilted it with red thread.
