Description

These are going to be snuggle quilts for 2 sisters.  Their mom wanted them to look the same so they wouldn't fight over them :)  This was my first 16-patch project.  The blocks for the front took a long time to assemble, but oddly enough, the backings caused me more trouble and anxiety.  Funny how that happens sometimes.  One piece of flannel shrunk too small to use when I prewashed it, another piece I rejected because it was not the right color, the turquoise owl fabric was actually my 4th choice/attempt at these backings.  

I chose to machine-stitch the bindings on these quilts to save time.  I don't think I have done that since my early quilting days, except on small projects.  I think if I did it again, I would reverse the process and stitch it down on the top, but I think it turned out OK.

I sure do LOVE those little Nursery-Versery mice!
