Two Finished Quilts



I finished this log cabin baby quilt recently and thought I’d post it.  I wanted to work with red. I love log cabins and decided to try one enlarged block and see how I felt about it.  I like it. I backed it in some fabric I picked out for my nephew's quilt, I think it's Tula Pink.  I ended up going with something different for Isaac, but I really love how bright the backing is.  It is quilted with a square "spiral" in the center red square and then has some all over flowers.  



It would be fun to do a few oversized blocks, maybe four square blocks or six if they were rectangular and not square for a larger quilt.  I keep coming back to the idea of making a large quilt using shot cottons, because I love the feel of the finished quilt and I enjoy quilting them, but I find that the colors are not usually as bright as I like.  I have enjoyed using Kaffe Fassett’s stripes; they are beautiful and have the same soft texture.  

I also finished this cross quilt, or addition quilt, for my son's kindergarten teacher.



She was a great teacher for him, warm and loving, but also had tons of energy.  She is a marathon runner and she ran every morning with her class.  It was a great way for my son to use up some of his energy in a very positive way.  Anyway, she retired and I felt like I wanted to send her off with a lap quilt.
That last picture is a bit dark.  I finished it in the middle of the night before the last day of school... Here are a couple of others...
