baby quilts #3 and #4

I have the quilt tops finished for 2 more baby quilts. YAY! The end is in sight, and I have since realized that the 6th of the 6 baby quilts I had to do was one for my own baby (which we just found out is a girl), so there's no rush on it.

I'm feeling a little lukewarm about this first one, a scrappy rail fence...but I always like scrappy quilts better once they are finished, and I do love these fabrics--i'm a big american jane fan.
this 2nd pic is a teaser, I don't want the recipient to see too much of it, I'm really liking this one. Hope to have them quilted this week!

Wonderful news about your little girl-to-be.
The baby quilts are looking wonderful.
I wonder what you'll make for your own baby?

Congratulations on the little girl! I have to agree with the first poster, you have such an eye for colour combinations! I have to admit I have "stolen" lots of inspiration from you for my quilts!

i LOVE the scrappy rail quilt. i've had something like that in my head for awhile now. i only hope mine turns out half as cute as yours does. i agree, scrappy quilts look best in the end.

and yay for the girl! :)

LOVE the american jane rails! I'm always a little worried about scrappy quilts as I'm piecing them. They do always look a little better after they're finished.

Congrats on the baby girl!
