Blankets of Love: Finished (Kind-Of)

Yippee!  This weekend I finished two tops (27x27 inches) and two backs (32x32 inches) for Blankets of Love, organized by Diary of a Flutter Kat's lovely Kat.  With any luck, they will be on their way to Kat in today's post.  She generously offered to add in the wadding and quilt them before sending them off to the local hospital.

This top is for a little girl and it has a matching pieced back. The binding will be Kona coral.


And then I used colors that were a bit darker for a little boy's quilt top and pieced back.  The binding will be a matching denim blue.



I hope they bring a bit of happiness and comfort to their new families. 

I am sorry for the really stinky photos!  With the low winter sun, the short daylight hours and the wind it Galway I am not doing that well this week!
