Two More Finishes

Two Quilts For Little Ones
40 x 40

I'm glad I took the pictures a few days ago. Since then we've had a little more snow and more frigid temperatures and wind. 

The first one is pinks and grays. I made this top and another larger one (not yet quilted) last year when pink was the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color of the month.  

It's a simple quilt made of alternating 4.5 inch pink and gray squares. 

I quilted it on my DSM on the diagonals with light gray thread. 

The binding is pink gingham.

Pink elephants, some polka dotted,  are on back. 

This is a BTF (back then front) quilt meaning I started with the back and made a front to go with it. 

Hello Kitty! 

I made this top last year around the same time I made the pink and gray one. I guess I had squares on my mind. This one started with a piece of Hello Kitty fabric someone gave me.   

I just happened to have a few fabrics like footprints and polka dots to add to the mix in red, black and white. I set the squares in a diagonal red, black, white layout. I also quilted this one on the diagonals in white thread. 

The binding is red gingham. 

The same person gave me a different Hello Kitty piece of fabric in a different colorway with a lot more pink in it. There was not enough of it for a backing so I had to piece the backing. 

Actually both quilts are reversible! Which is the front and which is the back?

And sew on...

Simply adorable! It is fun when a back becomes the inspiration for the front! That doesn't happen often!
