BARB'S ORIGINALS.....

I was asked to make two baby quilts in Samoan fabrics. The little gal that is getting this has pink polka dots in her room. So I just thought of dots and more dots in Samoan fabrics. I just love it...the back is the pink border. I need to take off the blue markings and it will be ready. Each quilt has a matching tote.



I was already working on my turtle quilt (some of you have asked for the pattern, this is the quilt for the cover)....but now it is sold. Tweeking the instructions...so it will be coming to you soon.

Love the quilts! I have a bunch of I Spy circles appliqued to some plain white background just waiting to be turned into a quilt. Someday lol

Congrats on selling the turtle quilt!!

Great Job on the quilts Barb!! I love the pink and white polka dot quilt and your turtle quilt is really fun as well. I love the idea of making a bag for the quilt.

Lucky little recipients, these are very cute and so special! I think a lot of work went into them. Did I miss it -- are the polka dots appliqued?

What great quilts. I have never done circles but seeing yours inspires me to try. Did you raw edge applique?
