Baby Quilts

These two quilts were finished up in December, but have been gifted (finally!), so I'm sharing them today.  Both were made with Urban Circus, and Kona Solids in Orange, Brown, and a green and blue....I honestly can't remember which ones now.  I wish they'd label those somehow.  Does anyone have any good way to do so? 

Anyway, here they are!

Curves Class

I finished my first project for curves class.  These are "basic" curves, which scares me a bit, I know this isn't as good as it could have been.

But, I got loads of practice sewing curves. I did have the same issues some others did, where at the stem, it didn't catch the bottom layer.  But, I tacked it down and moved on, and you can't tell when the pillow's done!

I didn't read the instructions quite right, and I should have had another row.  I did add some quilting to the negative space to give it a little something, and of course it ended up a bit small.  I did an envelope closure, since I didn't want to fight with a zipper today.  I used a 14" pillow form, the 16 looked like it might actually split the seam.

But, it inspired me to update all the pillows in the living room.  So that just added a bit to my to-do list.

I attempted my first curves ever....

Retro flowers block for the Love circle at do.Good Stitches.  It could have been a bit better, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first try.  I'm going to try to make another one, but this was time consuming!  Maybe after I finish some of Rachel's Curves class I'll be better.

This one is one of those "real quick" projects...I was SUPPOSED to have done a week after starting it on New Year's weekend...  It is taking for-ever....for-ever....for-EVER!

Progress is good....

I'm past this point now, I can not wait to show the finished product.
