Panel Quilt Raggedy Ann & Andy

This Baby Quilt is made from a panel. I quilted around the character real close with metallic thread. The thread does not show up good in pictures. I guess it is my cheap camera. Then i quilted around the squares and the center. I am going to hand quilt hearts in the squares where it is just background. Then it will be finished.

This is for my new niece for Christmas.

Car's Quilt

This little Twin Car's Quilt was made from a panel. All i did was add borders. Really fun to make. The back is striped together with 2 car fabric's. I did some machine quilting and i also tied some areas. I stitched around the car and truck cause i wanted them to puff out. This one is for a little boy age going on two. This is laid out on a queen size bed so you can see my twin size is bigger than most. I like to make them big enough that kids can grow up with the quilt. I still need to do a little more quilting in the upper and lower gray area. Then this quilt will be finished.

With Christmas around the corner i am going to be making gifts for family members. Yeah my mind is full of idea's ; but i have 1 baby quilt to make first. (my new niece) I will pit a pic up when it is done.
Hope you enjoy.
