12 Quilts in '12 August Finish

August!

It's the heat and the humidity!  Hello from Houston.  August has ended and "Fall" is near.  heh heh

OK, this month I made alot of stuff.  Right now, I will focus on the quilts.  2 quilts, that is...baby quilts...baby girl quilts.  I used two of my favorite pink lines of fabric. 

First to be finished is the Sherbet Pips from my stash.  I used straight line and swirlie quilting to highlight the zigzags.  I LOVE the zigzag quilt and it is so easy.


 My #2 finish is a braid quilt made from Putting On the Ritz.  I sure love this look, but did not really enjoy making the braids.  It was alot of little piecing and ironing.  Plus, I cut the braids wrong. (Please do not look closely).  I quilted leaves and really loved that part of it.  My daughter is giving this as a baby shower gift.

I used the remaining pieces of fabric left over for piecing the backs.


Love making the leaves.
