I forgot to show my Christmas Cards from this year :( and Baby Fabric

I realized that I forgot to show the fabric postcards that I did for Christmas this year! Woooops! I found this wonderful European Robin fabric and bought about a meter of it and one of the supporting fabrics. So I pieced the borders on directly to the timtex so that they were pieced and quilted at the same time. It took a lot longer than I thought that it would LOL!
I made about 50 cards this year and I actually have some left over. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them yet :)
I used a decorative stitch to seal the edges.


I also purchased a really cute baby fabric with some supporting fabrics to make a baby quilt for a friend. She wanted a sage green theme. I stareted with the beautiful green flannel backing fabric (on the left) and the quilt developed from there. It's going to have a small border in the blue with about a 4 inch border of the yellow. The words on the panel say "Would you like to swing on a star, carry moonbeams home in a jar" and I just fell in love with it. I'm not usually a big panel buyer but sometimes one just speaks to me :) The baby panels that are coming out now are just getting nicer and nicer all the time. Another thing that is getting nicer is the flannel fabrics!!! Don't you think? Flannel is sooo much nicer now than it used to be. It is sooo soft and the colours are just so much nicer and more saturated now! I usually try to back my baby quilts in flannel becasue it makes them so snuggly. Living in Canada the flannel is extra nice.

I hope that you like these :)
