A Litte More Sewing

Today after Church, I decided to quilt a quick little crib quilt and try a new quilting design. These little practice quilts, I donate to were my sister works and they are given to some of the children that need them. This is nothing fancy, just a piece of animal print fabric with borders sewn on. I still need to do the binding and I used a piece of THICK batting that I had so it is real fluffy!

This is the panto that I used, it is called, Spring Things. A very simple and easy design to do. This crib quilt with this simple design was done in a flash!
I saw a photo of a beautiful quilt on my friend, Michelle's blog. It is an old favorite called, Stacked Coins. I made one a few years ago and loved it, but the one that she just did, she made out of old sheets. It is very pretty.

Anyway, a while back I bought some fabric samples at the thrift store and that is the quilt that I had in mind for them. After I saw Michelle's, I knew I had to get mine back out and work on it. I honestly thought that I already had them sewn together, but they were only cut out. So I worked on sewing those together last night.

And last, here is a close up of Donkey!

Have a wonderful day!
