First on my to-do list were quilts for the babies. Let me tell you, it was really nice being able to make smaller quilts for a change!
My daughter lives on a farm up in Michigan and I found the cutest fabric collection that I thought would be perfect. I bought two layer cakes of Farm Fun by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda. The fabrics are bright and fun with farmhouses, cows, milk bottles, eggs, tractors and chicken wire! I wanted to use the same fabric but a different design for each of the quilts, so I chose an hourglass pattern for one and a pinwheel pattern for the other.

I did simple line quilting on the diagonal. The fabrics are so cute I thought simple was better.
For the binding I used chicken wire fabrics ~ one in red and one in green. And I kept the back simple with just a scrappy strip on each.
Once I finished the quilts, I made some burp cloths
Then I grabbed the Divided Basket pattern by Noodlehead (I've had this on my bucket list for a while!) and made a basket to put them in. :)
