Two Little Finishes

Two baby quilts finished! 
36 x 36

For Jack's Basket - one of this years Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge sponsored charities. 

 The first consists of 12 inch Sawtooth Stars.  I've had that fabric with tops in the stash for awhile and had just enough for those blocks.  

 The blue and the green alternating backgrounds pick up the blue and the green in the light checks in the top fabric. 

The backing is the same Kona Spring green. (I have a lot of that on hand because I like to use it with 30s repro fabrics. It's similar to the green grandma used in her quilts. And that's the only reason I actually know that it's Kona Spring. I don't usually remember fabric designers or manufacturers.) 

I pieced the batting using wide zig zag stitch.

I quilted it in light green thread with spirals  - appropriate for tops, don't you think? 

Binding is that same Kona Spring. 

 The second one is a Hole in the Barn Door. 
I originally went looking for some farm animals for the holes in the barn doors but came across a Peppa and Friends remnant first. So Peppa and Friends ended up in the barns.  I had just a few pieces leftover from that remnant so I guess it was meant for this baby quilt. 

The backing is a light gray with white jungle animals baby fabric I've had for a while.  The binding was a light gray solid -- part of it from the leftover binding bin and the other cut from a scrap in the scrap chunk crate. Batting was pieced for this one too and I quilted it with serpentine stitch.

Using big blocks is a good way to get a baby quilt done in a short amount of time, good going!
