Schnibbles Times Two

Hey, I made some quilts! I think the last quilt I made/finished was before Amelia was born, so this is exciting stuff for me.

Have you heard of "Schnibbles"? Well, as usual, I'm pretty unaware of what's cool out there in the world, but I do kind of know about Schnibbles. I've seen loads of the patterns around and I have a pattern book, which I love. 

Anyway, a friend of mine from the world's best baby group is pregnant with twins (poor thing) and this past weekend was her baby shower. After crocheting an entire blanket and deciding I couldn't come up with a good color scheme for a second blanket, I started in on making two quilts. This decision was made about 2 weeks ago, by the way. I had some charm packs laying around that were appropriate for a boy and a girl, and I had the "Schnibbles times two" pattern book...easy.

Really, it was pretty easy. Here's what I made.....

 The pattern is called "Plan C" and the fabric collection was "Punctuation" by American Jane. This one's for a baby girl.

The pattern for this quilt is "Hot Cross" and the fabric is "Lollipop" by Sandy Gervais (love her!). I prefer this quilt, I don't know why, maybe it's just the unique color scheme.

I'm glad I got a chance to work on something different for a change, and to give them to someone who I know will cherish them. They were very well received. :)

Oh yeah, and here's my most recent snap of Amelia at 19 months!

I took this picture in my living room which just received a much needed skylight (more on that later). Previously you would have had to turn on 5 lamps during the day just to see someone in that room! yay!

I learn something new everyday! The quilts turned out amazing and your daughter looks like she wants something. :)

Love both of those quilts. I'm looking forward to hopefully getting back to my machine this summer. I. Can't. Wait. And your little Amelia is looking adorable as always. I was looking back and I think the last post I saw of yours was when she was 6 months!
