Twin Boy Giraffe Quilts

Baby quilts are done! Good thing too because the shower was today. Nothing like last minute sewing. I finished the binding on the first one during my lunch hour at work yesterday and the second one last night around 8pm. My shoulders and hands are kinda achy though--from now on I will plan other projects as breaks between quilts.

But enough talking, here are the pics. Sorry that I couldnt do natural light, but by the time I finished them it was dark!!

Giraffes!


Both quilts together with soft cuddly backs showing


Folded close-up. You can see the quilting better on this one.


All tied up, ready to go!


One thing I learned about myself is that I need to watch myself as I tend to get smaller and smaller and tighter and tighter with the quilting as I go on. I do the same thing with knitting. I think it has to do with my natural personality, which is somewhat like Cameron in Ferris Beuller. Coal + My Ass = Diamond. Ha!!

LOL! I find that listening to classical music or really mellow music helps me keep a steady pace.

I've always loved this quilt but I haven't had occasion to make it yet.
