Raining rain and quilts!

Hello Happy quilting friends, the rain has set in again here in Whangarei Northland so what better time to invite you along to a look at Gail and Nicki's baby quilts as well as a baby quilt I am making. First is Nicki's creation for her two grandchildren.

Made from a cute little farm range of fabrics, simple triangles using a 60degree ruler, sashings and borders. The pattern is called Zebra Crossing, but Nicki was attracted to the cute farm animal fabrics. Nicki chose the E2E quilting pattern "Whoote-Woo".

Look at the sweet backing fabric too, suits a girl or boy, just as well because Nicki has one of each!

Thank you Nicki, I'm sure your grand-babies will enjoy snuggling and rolling around under and on this cute quilt. The next quilt was made by Gail as a gift for her friends great grandchild, soon to be born, isn't Gail one fabulous friend!

Made up from simple solid squares Gail asked for E2E quilting, she was happy for me to choose, "Gummy Bears" seemed like to good choice.

Gail chose a nice cream on cream backing fabric along with Matilda's Own polyester batting.

Thank you Gail. As you know this blog is a place where I share the huge variety of quilts given to me  by my customers, from time to time I do share a few projects that I am working on personally.
"Woodland Critters" is one such quilt. When I found out I was going to be a 'granny' again later in the year of course I wanted to make the baby a quilt. I found this cutey-pie quilt on the Shiny Happy World website.

I have finished all the applique and machine blanket stitch I just need to come up with three little critters for the smaller plain squares, then I can start piecing the blocks together and make a decision if the quilt needs borders or not.
Linking up with Julie and Linda for 'Sew-Stitch-Snap-Share', it's well worth a few clicks to enjoy some lovely posts of all sorts of fabric and quilty goodness!
