First Finishes of 2021

Snowy morning greetings! I finished three baby quilts this last week. I used one fat eighth pack and some blenders from my stash.
I set one horizontal and
the other two vertically.
I used minky backings. Two were a silvery gray and one was charcoal.
I quilted two of them with my wavy stitch in following the blocks going vertically and horizontally every three inches.
And I did one vertically with my wavy stitch every 1.5 inches. The design for these quilts is a free pattern/tutorial you can find here:
COVID has definitely brought a baby boom among teachers in my town! I started working on two more baby quilts yesterday. Both are woodland theme and in blues and grays. I cut out fabric to make them both yesterday.
I got the blocks for one sewn together yesterday. I am using a pattern called Labyrinth and I bought it  on Etsy. I ordered some more gray minky for the backings from Joann's this morning--my local store is out. I have two more baby quilts to work on after these--one is a muted rainbow using the rainbow block from The Bonnie & Camille Quilt Bee book and the other needs to be a mauve and green. I have to figure out a design and fabrics for that one! 

Have a great week!
