Two More for Quilts of Compassion!

This little girl quilt is finished at last.
There's no real reason it wasn't finished before, I just found something else to do in the meantime. You do know how that is, don't you?

The backing is Disney princesses. My friend Phyllis got in some quilting practice on this one. I think she did a great job!

And the same story with this little boy quilt. I just got interested in something else and pushed this one, too, to the back burner.

I do like it, and I hope some little boy will like it, too.

The backing is the story of "The Little Engine that Could". I remember my mother reading this story to us when we were children. I think I can, I think I can. Do you remember that one, too?

This will complete our shipment to Quilts of Compassion for this time around. I am thankful to have them all done before Thanksgiving. Now to clean the house and cook!

I do hope you will have time this week to spend with those you love. I'm thankful to still have that opportunity with at least some of our family!

Hugs and kisses,

Both these quilts are great. I really enjoy seeing the combinations you put together and the wonderful backings you use.
They work so well.
And i think your friend has done a great job with her quilting.

Lovely quilts. There are a lot of fabrics and patterns that I get nostalgic about thinking of books I read to my kids.
