Last night I trimmed more novelty nickels & sorted them once again. (I have more to trim & I am swapping some so I still have not started to sew on the stretched star...)
Here is the quilt for my cousin Cheryl's second baby. We do not know the sex yet, so I used a neutral yellow for the border. This is a charm "I Spy" quilt. Squares are an easy charm & I like easy. Since we do not know the sex, I tried to use both masculine and feminine images. I also used a lot of Aunt Grace, because to me that type of fabric says, "baby." I guess that is becasue it is generally pastel and dainty. The daintyness also make it a great candidate for "I Spy" quilts. There will be quite a few in my own "I Spy" quilt even though I do not care for that style of fabric.
In the other photo, you are actually seeing the binding and border of Kassidy's Star Fling quilt, but I used the same binding on both quilts. I really love to use stripes as binding. The pink & blue one here works so well with both of these quilts.
I let Linda play on this quilt, too. and as you can see this one is not heart filled like the last one. In addition to sharing the same binding, these quilts also share the same backing, a pink flannel with cats and a pink flannel with poodles. (The store did not have enough of the cats, so I included the dogs.)
I hope the baby & the babies momma enjoy this quilt.
