Oh, Boy(s)!

At last we had a day that was good for photography, my photography assistant was available, and I was home at the proper time (late in the afternoon before the sun goes down).

Four quilts have been retrieved from the machinist, bound, and waiting patiently for documentation. 

They are made with Kaffe/Westminster fabrics for the feature parts and with Kona solids for the alternate blocks or background.



Way back when I was birthin' babies, Miss Scarlett, we didn't have the option of knowing the gender ahead of the delivery. I wouldn't have found out, anyway. That's just my preference; I find no fault with those who can't wait to know!

And it certainly makes it easier to have the right quilt ready when the baby is, finally, born!

The first quilt is Louisiana blocks and the second one is the Mazed pattern, though some of the blocks are pieced backwards.

I'm pleased with both of them.

Both quilts should make the baby's mommy happy! Lovely! I too would not find out the gender. There are just so few true surprises in life...

You should be pleased. They will each make some new mama very happy, and some little babe very warm. : )

Amazing variety of looks in those "pinwheels." LIKE. I like the idea if some mystery when I piece, rather than always knowing exactly where I'm going
