Oh Baby!

Last year was weddings...this year it seems to be babies! 
No, none of the couples that got married last year are having babies yet. 
Sew I have been busy making baby quilts! I already showed you the baby rag quilt that I made on a previous post. I also finished this cute quilt I'm calling Elephant March.

I found this cute elephant print that I fussy cut to fit the squares. I had been wanting to make a hour glass quilt for a while when I was inspired by this quilt by Jennifer. I love the way the coordinating striped fabric works in the hour glass. The quilting is a simple FMQ stipple. The binding is Kona Marine and the background is Kona White.

Another finish is this bright baby quilt called "Doing the Bunny Hop!"

The sashing fabrics are all dot from various fabric lines chosen to coordinate with the fussy cut bunnies.

The backing is a small pin dot in green.

The fabric for the corner stones and the prairie points is Kona White.  This is the first time I have attempted to do prairie points. I followed this tutorial by Heather at quilt.cook.keep
They were much easier to do than I expected. 
They are so cute!
 All three count as finishes in April! Yay!
What have you been stitching?
