Owls and Turtles and Birdies, Oh My!

I’ve been busy, busy, busy making a couple of quilted gifties for Christmas.  I can’t wait to wrap them up!

This yellow/green lap quilt uses zig-zag stitching that I absolutely love.  It’s the third quilt I’ve created using this pattern (Easy Does It! by Darlene Zimmerman).

And this colorful quilt was created using the adorable Le Amis Fabric Collection.  The colors are so cheerful and the animals on it… SO cute!  The owls and turtles are my favorite.

And as if I don’t have enough sewing projects to work on already, today I gathered some cute fabrics to make a wintery quilt.  Since I won’t be able to finish it by Christmas, I thought I’d avoid red and green and instead try reds and grays and aquas so it can be used all season long.  I’m thinking a checker-pieced pattern here… with double-stitch quilting… and I’ll probably change my mind ten times before I actually get started.  🙂
