Birthday Quilts

Planning to make a quilt for Bella’s birthday, I asked Kathy what she likes. Butterflies, mermaids, My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, and Peppa Pig, so a trip to Joanns for a half-yard of the last three. The rest was already in my sewing room just waiting for the perfect quilt. 

I got all the pieces cut and enlisted Elizabeth’s help in laying the pieces out while I stayed with the kids last weekend. It was sewn together Sunday/Monday. Quilted on Tuesday. 

I was planning to make a pillowcase for the quilt and one for her brother, Robbie, too. Then I decided to make him a quilt also. Jason said he likes dinosaurs, so the search for Dino quilts began. I saw this cute panel.  What could be easier than adding borders to a panel? Perfect fabrics in my stash for this one too! 

Quilted on Friday morning, bound Friday evening. Pillowcases were made this morning. 

I think they like them!
