Two Small Quilts

Every year our guild makes small quilts for Teddy Bears for Christmas Cheer Fund.  These are really neat to make because they are small and don't take a lot of time to make.  I like to piece so I often make a small quilt with a lot of piecing involved.

Little Boy's Toys

I found this on Lyn Brown's Blog.  Notice that one of the boats is
facing the wrong way.  So cute.
If you check out her blog she a lot of small quilts for dolls that are free.

Baby Buckaroos

I bought an ebook on line from Martingale Publishing and this little quilt was in it.
I bought this fabric a few years ago when I visited my brother in
Tallahassee and didn't realize that it was tailor made for this quilt.  I made some magic 9 patch blocks in red this time.
I had made this quilt before but used blue 9 patches.
I think I like the red better because it sets the fussy cut squares off.
I actually sold this quilt yesterday.
I think it was the first one I have sold since I started quilting 10 years ago.
A friend called and asked if I had a quilt for a boy for her to take to a baby shower this weekend.
