Baby quilts

I finished the two baby quilts for my new granddaughters before I got on the plane...even the bindings were finished!

I've been wanting to make a coins quilt since I've been seeing them around the blogs...my coins come in all different denominations-some fat, some thin! I quilted it with an automatic stitch on my machine that makes wavy lines in a grid pattern.
I love how it came out...crinkly and it was really quick to machine quilt.

Here's the second quilt:

I added the side borders because my blocks used pieces that I had already cut at 5" so the blocks came out a little smaller than in the pattern. I'm really pleased with it. To see the original and get the pattern (very cute, quick and easy!) go here. Thanks Jaimie!

I quilted it too with the same wavy lines but just vertical parallel lines for this quilt. So fast and easy with my walking foot! Both quilts were finished in less than a week!

LOL! I'm such an old granny...there was no pink in the quilt so I just had to use a pink binding.

Here's the back of the coin quilt-little baby foot prints.
Butterflies here.
And here's Mika under her coin quilt....
and Ella under hers.
