Baby blankets!

This spring I was excited to hear one of my sweet nieces was expecting!  I was super excited to that she expected twins!  As an instructor at my LQS, Compass Rose Quilting, I was in the throws of teaching a beginning quilting class.  What luck!!  Using a quilt from the Colorful Quilts for Fabric Lovers by Amy Walsh I instructed my class how to cut out this great (fun!) quilt and cut one for myself as well.

I also was testing out a pattern for Mandalei (Amanda Leins).  Luckily I was able to use this fun bright baby sized top for one of the quilts.

IntersectionsMartha (from Compass Rose Quilting fame) sandwiched them together and made short (beautiful) work of them.
