2 finishes and 2 days to Christmas!

Finished up 2 quilts in the last 24 hours. Not that I'm cutting it close to Christmas or anything..... Yikes! I still have one more to complete before Christmas Eve.
The first one is my first I-Spy quilt. This one isn't staying with me--it's for my cousin Monica's little girls. Monica participated in the I-Spy swap and then commissioned me to make her quilt. It was a lot of fun!
This is one of my favorite squares--the green with black and white shoes!
For the backing, I used a vintage-y kitchen-y print and a beet print. I LOVE the beets. Not sure why.
This one.... well I'm kind of in love with it. It's a jelly roll... wait, no. It's a honey bun. Moda Oh Cherry Oh! Love it. I did a basketweave pattern and then a border. Backed it with the same pattern as the border. The binding was an unrelated red and white dot.
It's a baby gift for my cousin's little daughter who is 12 weeks old!


  1. they look great Wendy, congratulations on getting them done in time! Merry Christmas.

  2. Those look awesome! I love the design on the I-spy one. I've got it bookmarked and I'm totally going to copy that for a Project Linus quilt next year!

  3. Good going! they look really lovely :)

  4. Love these two. Great work, Wendy!!

  5. My 12 week old LOVES her new quilt. She has been wrapped up in it for four days now. You are the best cousin-in-law!
