NICU Quilts (mini's)

I'm sewing along with Hopeful Threads & Sew BitterSweet Designs this month
I finished up two minis to send along. I used this XO tutorial as my inspiration for these two.

The girl one finished in at 30x30 and is made from 1/2 a jelly roll.

The boy one finished in at 22x22 and I started with 6.5 cuts.

Penny Patch QAL progress

Penny Patch: A Beginners Quilt Along over at Stitched in Color -

So far so good- I am happy with how the quilt is coming together

I am using vintage sheets for my Throw Size Penny Patch Quilt
My colors: A- Pink, B-Yellow, C- Blue, N- Brown, low volume is a full sheet
 I did run into an issue that I didnt have enough pieces to make the required squares even though I started with the right amount pieces and cut as directed....
 I was lucky to have on hand a few more pinks & yellows to use I also made a few 4 patches to fill in the blocks I didn't have pieces for
 A happy mistake since I do like the play on pink & yellow tones in the lay out.
