I almost forgot about these. They've been packed away under the bed for a few years now. They needed an airing out and cleaning anyways.
The plaid triangles quilt is R's baby quilt. I think the triangles are the shape they are to make the most of quarter-yards of fabric. It was intended to be a bigger quilt but somewhere along the way I lost steam and it was set by the wayside. As my first pregnancy progressed, I realized I wouldn't didn't have the time or energy to make a baby quilt so the unfinished one was just folded in half, quilted and edged. Voila. Nearly instant baby quilt, reversible, with the same but different triangle patterning on the other side as well. It's hand pieced and quilted.
The star and moon one is E's baby quilt. The strips were added around the outside to make it bigger. It's backed with a yellow patterned flannel. The star pattern is a small section of a quilt in some magazine and the moon was improvised.
The leaf quilt? I don't know. I think I started it before E was born but didn't finish it until later. I'm not sure when, although I'd guess it was when we were still considering having or adopting another child. It's based loosely on a pattern from the same magazine, I think, as the star pattern in E's quilt. Maybe I intended this for a girl if we had one? I don't really know. I had forgotten about it but now that I think about it, E used this one a little bit, too. It's hand appliqued and machine quilted. This one could probably be
None of these have much wear and tear because both the boys slept with us and never had a crib, moving straight into a bed on the floor next to our bed. In the winter they wore fleece snow suits so I think we really only used these to lay them on when they were too little to crawl.
That's it. The end of the quilts. So many more I'd like to make.
