Yet another quilt

Yep, another quilt. I promise we do things other than trash garage doors and quilt around here, but it's all pretty quiet and un-exciting. I'm also trying to get as much done before New Baby's arrival as I can. Anyway, here's the next quilt, made for a friend in the ward expecting her second girl. I used this tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts (she's amazing). I used a jelly roll, cutting the coins 5.5", made the outside sides and bottom sashing sides 1" larger, and only made four stacks to make it the right size. The math of a quilt top is one of my favorite parts of quilting. I realize that makes me not quite right. I also experimented with some straight-line quilting in the white sashing for some interest, and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Anyway, mom seemed to like the quilt, and I'm hoping the new baby girl will when she's big enough. Now on to the next two quilts for some newborn twin boys :)

The next quilt

Several weeks ago, I finally finished this quilt for my nephew. He arrived back in December, but I'm moving just a bit slower these days. Not quite sure why...

Anyway, the pattern came from Oh Fransson's Mod Sampler quilt-along. I used fewer fabric pairs and dropped one of the block patterns to keep it the right size. The fabric is from Lizzy House's Red Letter Day collection (Side note - I posted this quilt on the Red Letter Day group on Flickr last week, and guess who commented on it? Lizzy House herself! I saw it this morning, and it *totally* made my day :)

Hopefully the new owner will enjoy his quilt (I hear his big sisters do already), and I'm excited to be moving onto the next one!
