Granddaughters Quilts and Halloween 2008

Here are the quilts I made for my three granddaughters in September and October. They were made using a wacky quilt block with the fabric line "Spring Fling" by Me and My Siter for Moda. It took me about a year to figure out what kind of quilt I wanted to make with this fabric, and I was excited when I realized that I could do this fun block. I wanted a lot of white it the quilts. I love white with pinks and yellows, etc. and I just fell in love with these quilts after they were done.

I also made each family a quilt for Halloween. Stephanie and I cut them out, and I sewed the tops and quilted them all in one day--it took one more day to bind them. I used a 1/2" bias binding foot, and found that there are easier ways to machine bind a quilt. It was a good learning experience, and I think the quilts turned out great for a fun holiday lap quilt.

Here's the quilt I made for Steph and Israel for Halloween!
