(See side bar on the right.)
I should have more pics to show soon, too. Can you believe that I made a quilt and gifted it without taking pictures?!? Shameful! I do have one pic of the mom opening it, so I will try and get it up this weekend.
Edit: It seems I didn't even get a picture with her holding it up, but there it is folded up on the arm of the chair. I used two Woodland Bloom charm packs, and more Woodland Bloom for the backing and binding. The mom loves sentimental gifts, so I just hope she will actually let the baby use it, not put it up to preserve it. I promise I will make her another one if this one gets too ragged!

I've been working on this zig-zag quilt this week, and it's ready to be assembled finally! I used this tutorial from Amanda Jean, and it's going pretty quickly so far. I think I need to get some white batting for this one. I've been using Warm and Natural, but it seems like most of you use white batting when there is white sashing, so I guess the natural might show through? I hope to have this finished before we go to the beach in two weeks so that the baby can use it to play on the floor of the condo!
I've also been cutting for the robot quilt for my other son. I couldn't help but sew one block together last night. It's the Simple Modern Baby Quilt from Oh, Fransson. I think I'm really going to like it!

I thought about stopping at the charm squares row, but decided to put another border on to make it bigger for him to play on it on the floor. So the final measurements are 33 1/2 in. square. The frog panel was 11 1/2 in. square to start. The inner blue border was 4 in. Then a round of 20 charm squares, followed by a 5 in. green border.

And here it is all cut and layed out:
The colors were a little wild, but I just bought some random cheap fat quarters since it was my first quilt. My baby loves it! It makes an excellent lovey for him, and I think the color brightness and contrast is what makes it the best for him. Here it is all finished up:
I think a few more of these are in my future for loveys for my kids as well as gifts. I defintely recommend this tutorial to anyone starting out with quilting. It was very easy to follow and I love the result!
