It's almost like Christmas when you find a piece of quilting that's been tucked away for a while. Either that or I've gone 'round the bend and my memory is on the way out.
I just found these two completed baby quilt tops I had made from Evelyn Sloppy's book "40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts." Neither will be for sale because they're obviously not my original designs. But as soon as they're finished, they will be ready to be given to sweet, little, new arrivals. I already know of one eagerly anticipated birth due end of this summer.
This one is entitled "Cheerio" and appears on page 41 of the above mentioned book. What fun this one was to make! I could do it over and over again using my rather ample stash of scraps. I put a slightly different border on mine than was shown in the book.
This is "Peppermint Twist." As the name might imply, it was done in red and white in the book (page 111), but I choose lavendar and white for mine. It's constructed of just one simple block reversed and went together quickly.
Am I going to work on finishing these two quilts right away? Probably not as I was gone a lot this past week and never got back to working on more of my reversible quilted baby bibs I'm trying to get ready for listing on my website. But no matter. The two tops are now hanging on my design wall and I'm enjoying looking at them. It's been so long since I've seen them that it's almost like finding forgotten presents!
