More 2016 Finishes

With only a couple of weeks left for 2016, I have realised there are some quilts not blogged about. Given that is  a diary of my quilt finishes, I need to fill in

First that comes to mind are the baby Quilts.
I was the only person who knew that Lukes new baby was to be a girl so I could make her quilt.
Seeing the baby wasn't going to sleep in a cot, I decided a full single was a better idea. 
I decided on the Kittens Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman. For fabric,  I have a lot of Pam Kitty Morning fabric which I also used for Maisies quilt, and it is perfect for wee girls.
decisions made.
This is Hazels Quilt.

Once baby was named Hazel I had a bit of a problem. I couldn't help but make a Hazel Hedgehog quilt- another Elizabeth Hartman pattern. I had made one before for the Quilt Along held by Gnome Angel. That lives in Australia with Sienna, so I had to make another one. Again I turned to Pam Kitty Morning for the fabric. I made this a large cot size. It can be used as a play mat or whatever they find useful.

My November finish was Summer Solstice. This was a quilt along with Melissa from Happy Quilting.
The fabric is from the Eden range by Tula Pink.  This one is 100 by 100 inches so is a biggie.  I still manage to quilt it on my Bernina without any problem.

The latest finish is Coral Anniversary. This is a row quilt which The Quilt Room held to celebrate 35years in business. One row was completed each month from April to December.
The fabric is True Colors by Amy Butler.
