Three more quilts for Crisis Centers!!

Karene and Yvette have donated these gorgeous quilts to our efforts for the Women's Crisis Centers in Wyoming.... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Karene's is a beautiful, happy bee quilt! This is perfect for one of the cribs! Isn't it cute?!

I think those bees are adorable! Karene appliqued them and they just make me smile!

And Yvette's is a double size quilt that is backed with flannel.... What a pretty tulip design!!

This has made me completely rethink the backing for a few of the quilts I'm making for the Crisis Centers. Talk about increased warmth! The flannel is an idea I had not considered.

With that in mind, I took some left over squares I had in 30's reproductions and made a quick crib quilt the other night.... And backed it with some flannel I had on hand. At one time, I thought I'd make jammie pants for my girls from this blue plaid flannel.... But we live in SoCal - flannel jammie pants are too much and this fabric has just sat in my stash....

Yay, busted some stash and hopefully this will keep a baby cozy in Wyoming.... which DOES get cold! We're sending twice as many crib quilts as there are cribs, so hopefully we'll have some for all seasons, and backup quilts for when a child is sick or one is in the laundry!

Thanks everyone! :)

Karene's bees are adorable - and Yvette's tulips are just beautiful; I'm loving the happiness of the baby quilt you made! I think we are going to need to see some pictures of the rooms when the quilts are on the beds! That would be fun to see! Mine is coming along slowly....I guess I'm the weakest link!! :)
