Preparation

Today I prepared two quilts for quilting. I finished the tops, cut into my roll of batting, layered and pinned them ready to go tomorrow.

The top one is finally using the leftover blocks from another quilt after a mishap here when I made the alternate blocks the wrong size. It's destined for my cousin's daughter, who's likely to arrive on Thursday.The second one is for a friend's baby girl who is already a few weeks old and is a variation on my Breaking Surf.
Both quilts are likely to be quilted almost the same as their predecessors; the first because I can't see another sensible option, and the second because I can't wait to try those feathers again; I hope they work as well as they did the first time!
