Completed quilts

I've completed 2 of the 4 quilts I had on the go a couple of weeks ago.  The Siblings Together quilt was finished about a week ago and the Rainbow quilt was finished a couple of hours ago.  Why I decided to make a quilt for a christening the week before we went on holiday I don't know.  It was a bit of a rush job this morning to bind it in time for tomorrow's events!

Here are some pics taken inside as it is a horrible grey day here today and I doubt I'll have time to take more tomorrow.

The Rainbow quilt was made up of lots of different scraps bought from many different online shops and lots of leftovers from other projects.  Backed in a full piece of heart fabric from IKEA.  Simply quilted either side of the horizontal seams.  It measures 44 x 63 inches.

The Siblings Together quilt still has it's pins in!  It measures 48 x 72 inches.  Backed in a solid purple and more of the IKEA hearts.  I quilted either side of all the seams in a hot pink which really stands out against the solid (and just happens to show how un-straight some of my straight line quilting actually is!)

A quick wash for this over the weekend and in the post I will be popping it!  Hopefully it will make someone very happy.

Both of the quilts are great! I'm sure they will be loved.
