Fabulous Quilts!

I'm back with two really cute quilts and (knock on wood) more to come!  Things seem to have settled down here for now~

Alright!  This first one is called Can You Spare a Dime?  It's a great batik quilt using Tonga Treat Squares - Hard Candy.  Super bright and super easy to make!   It uses batiks, but any layer cake or 10" squares would do the job.

I couldn't resist adding the pansies to the picture, they are just too pretty! 

The quilt measures 56" x 64" and takes just 2 packs of the Tonga Treat Squares.  Like it?  Click here to buy the pattern and squares, too!

This next one is called Fab Five - Fast, Fun and Flirty - Lotsa Dots. This one goes together really quick and with all of the different options in the book, there is something for everyone! We used Queen Street by Jennifer Paginelli. The book calls for raw edge applique, but we used the quick turn method. Either way, you'll end up with a Fast, Fun and Flirty Quilt!  The quilt measures 50" x 60".  You can buy the Queen Street fabric and the book here.   I couldn't resist the lovely pansies again :o)  If you want to see the pictures from the Fab Five Book, so you can see what you're getting, just click here!   As always, Happy Sewing!!
