The first quilt finish uses blocks that I won in the Sunshine Quilt Guild’s block lottery – the color scheme for that month was red/white/black. I’m sure an older child will appreciate these more sophisticated colors. The back is black and white polka dots. I took the pic when the binding was still pinned, but it's done now.
This quilt fulfills two of my 2011 Challenges:
First, it was number 18 on my list for Judy Laquidera's UFO Challenge from her Patchwork Times blog. I had more than 12 to put on a list so I doubled up and #18 was across from #6 which is the number she selected for January - I have already finished my #6 - read about it in this post.
And Second, it is #3 of my 11 in 11 Challenge for WTIL - I'm making progress on making 11 quilts for that group this year.

The second quilt finish was made with some fabric that I received when a dear lady passed away. I fussy-cut some of the whimsical animals and framed them in the Attic Windows setting. The borders have butterflies in the same colors. The backing is an orange tone-on-tone. A younger child is sure to latch on to this cute top that is soft and cuddly, even if it doesn’t photograph well (the camera operator, I’m sure)!
This is #4 for my goal of making 11 quilts for the 11 in 11 Challenge for WTIL. Woohoo!
