Finished quilt duo

Ah, the comforts of home... It is the Fire Ox, in his natural habitat. While he's afraid of sinks and wouldn't be caught dead in one, he loves to lounge, tree-sloth-like, on the chair arm.
And, now the finished baby quilts that seemed never-ending back in November. But the cats protected them from harm.
This one was commissioned, with a green & yellow color scheme to work around. I liked it better with the orange & purple in as well. The center squares of each block are not pieced, but are from a cute kiddie fabric that actually matched the shade of green required. The squares have giraffes, hippos, lions, tigers & a creature I kept thinking of as a donkey until EG suggested, "Maybe it's a zebra?" And indeed, it has stripes.
The second one is more the color scheme I tend towards on my own (which would, evidently, be as many colors as possible). This one is for DVP's 2nd child, a boy born last summer.

It has a great number of small squares of fabrics with creatures. Many were left over from earlier kids' quilts. I'm very happy with this one.

Maybe we can start a quilting bee? I really envy your talent.

I love the two; they are great. And as for a stiped animal having to be a zebra??? Well, it doesn't HAVE to be! Screw them!! ;^)

As for DC's comment... Yes! Yes! I need to use up my millions of yards of fabric. I think we need to resurrect it!!!

But, as it seems that we usually seem to need projects and goals to work towards... I think we need to invent a few... So, here are mine:

-New nephew baby quilt
-Older nephew and neice quilts
-Halloween quilt
-Japanese Quilt
-Kiddie/fun print Japanese quilt
-Batik Quilt for sister
-Wall hangings of all my nice new metallic stuff

Oh, and let's not forget the king sized quilt for my redneck cousin, AKA Pig...

I think we can finish them all in a weekend. No?

Sounds like a plan. And lets pick a really difficult pattern, with tiny pieces of fabric for Pig's king-sized quilt.

I vote for quilt number two. So cute. I cannot start quilting. Slap me for even thinking about it.
