January Finishes - Baby Quilts & a Pincushion

It seems babies come in groups - well that is what seems to happen for me...My youngest's partner has two female cousins who are expecting babies this month - one has arrived and one will be here on the 28th.

So, of course, I had to make quilts for each.  We have always know the second one was a boy - I saw the ultrasound pic - there is absolutely no doubt about that one - LOL - the other was was an "unknown" - and now we know it is also a boy.  It will be lovely for them to grow up together as the whole family is very close.

I have tried to use some of what I already have - but I did buy the orange in both of these and the borders.

Baby 1:
This largely made from left overs from a quilt that Maureen made for my eldest daughter when she had little Luka.  I was able to buy a few more to add to the collection.

For the backing I chose this fun print.

Baby 2:
The dad is fond of Tonka trucks and I was able to source some fabric with the trucks on it.. And I couldn't resist the other truck fabric

The couple also have 2 dogs, so I thought this backing was great.

I also made Mrs Pinny. (strictly speaking Ms. Pinny Cush by Amy Bradley Designs)

I originally made 3 of these as gifts in 2015 (here) for various people and didn't quite get around to making one for me.

There is a bit more happening here . . . .but I don't think there will be any more January finishes.
