A good day's work!

I got started early.  If you read my last post you will recall that I managed to quilt both these quilts yesterday.  You can't really see the quilting on this one but I did a series of lines down from top to bottom.  I reckon this will look great on a single bed but I don't have a suitable room to try it out on - and by suitable I mean one that doesn't have teenager mess written all over it!  Yuck!
 I think this quilt is just gorgeous - but I really like bright pretty colours!  if you look closely you can see the gorgeous stripey fabric binding.  Both bindings still need to be sewn down but thankfully I don't need to do that.  I think this is a safe choice for a teenage girl.  Just hope she is not a tomboy or a goth!
 The boy's quilt is backed with more of the yellow and black check.  This is the backing for the girls.  I think it is lovely and given that Andrea already had it and we didn't have to buy it I think that makes it PERFECT!
 Irene made pillowcases to match both too.  
I am looking forward to them being completed so I can pack them up and send them on their way!

Till next time............happy stitching!


  1. Both quilts look great! I love it when I find a fabric in my stash that will work as a backing - it looks perfect to me too!!

  2. they both look fantastic Jan-Maree,well done.xx

  3. Perfect quilts for the family of five.
    So nice to have a pillowcase to go with them.

  4. Both quilts are fantastic, perfect for a boy and a girl. Matching pillowcases are the way to go, kids don't like shams.

  5. Just great!!!!! I love the pinwheels too! So happy! The backing is gorgeous!!!!

  6. Beautiful quilts and pillowcases! I know the kids will really love them!

  7. You have done a GREAT job. Love your quilts. You really have a good heart.
