My November finish

I’m participating in a blog party called A Lovely Year ofFinishes and for November my goal was to quilt and bind a couple of baby quilts.  So here they are.

This little grey and yellow quilt I’ve called Giraffe Baby quilt, named for the backing fabric and the pantograph which includes a baby giraffe.

None of the fabric on the front was particularly babyish, so I was happy to find the yellow and grey giraffe fabric.  The pantograph by Patricia Ritter is called Animal Crackers and includes a giraffe

An elephant

And a lion

Here is a picture of the back, with the lovely giraffe fabric and bits of many fabrics from the front of the quilt.

A close up of the back, can you make out the giraffe, the lion and part of the elephant?

The second baby quilt that I completed is a ‘Mile a Minute’ pattern, bordered with pastel cow fabric.

For this quilt I used a pantograph by Patricia Ritter called Moo, Ewe and Piggy too.  Can you make out the cow and the pig?

The lamb is a little easier to see

Backed with an aqua flannel

The farm animals are a little easier to see on the back of the quilt


And Piggy too

How are you doing with finishing quilting projects?  I'm happy to have found the A Lovely Year of Finishes blog party, three months and four finishes!
