The folks who took our chickens have the cutest two kids and I wanted to make them each a quilt before we leave. There’s not enough time to make anything too intricate and I was talking to a friend on the phone last night who said she had just finished the Carpenter’s Wheel big block quilt so I decided to make one of those and then I was going to make something different for the other one but then said . . heck, I’ll make it easy on myself and make both the same, just using different colors.
The little boy likes blue so I’m thinking these are the colors I’ll use for his. The red in the star will be a brighter red than it appears in this drawing.
This is the fabric I’ll use for his backing.
The little girl likes pink so her quilt will either have a lime or purple center. What do you think?
For her backing, I’ll probably use one of these fabrics. I don’t think I have any cute pink fabric to use for the backing but I haven’t really searched yet. I may come up with something else.
The stripe is actually horizontal.
