Two Baby Quilts

I have been staying at a friend's house--house and pet sitting for her.  She has a huge sewing studio (see previous post about it) and I get to use it when I am there.  So, last week I took advantage and finished up some quilt projects using her Pfaff quilting 2027 machine. I had finished piecing them previously and was waiting to have them quilted or be able to quilt them myself with a good machine--I am sorely in need of a good quilting machine!  But Oh Well . . . . that's another story!

I quilted and finished the edging of two baby quilts. One in greens and yellow; and the other brown and pink.

The green one is to be an heirloom quilt for my family.  It is made of scraps that are from a larger quilt that I made during my recovery from breast cancer surgeries.  It has special meaning to me and my family.  It will be kept in my legacy box for my grandchildren until such time as I want to give it away or the contents will be given away at my passing.  I want to leave some of my creations to my family, so I cannot sell them all!

The pink and brown one will be sold in my shop, to be listed sometime later this week.  It is made of a minky and flannel panel that I found on sale and I added the cute pink flannel backing. Doesn't it look so soft and cuddly!!

Sure was fun to use a good machine!  Thanks Sharon!!!!

Gorgeous quilts, and I love the story behind the first one. It's always fun to get to use great technology like that.

Both are lovely, Linda, and the legacy box is such a beautiful idea. Lucky you to be able to use that nice machine again!
