Two For the Price of One

OK, not really.  It all cost me, but how about two tops to show you today?

 Blue Fairy Quilt Top

 Pink Fairy Quilt Top
 I can't believe it took me so long to get around to putting them together.  It's not like they were particularly complicated.  I think I originally planned to do pieced blocks in addition to the panels, but the above picture in a Fons & Porter Quilts for Kids helped me past that.  Unfortunately, I couldn't use the measurements in the pattern because my panels were not the same size - and I wanted the fairy names to show.
 So I did lots of math.  With fractions.  The blue and pink panels were different as well, so I did math twice!  Fortunately, it all came together pretty nicely.  Now I need to prep some backings and get basting.
 I was contemplating a third fairy quilt, because I have one more large panel - but the colors are so far off, I don't think its going to happen.  At least not like this.

 E has decided she wants the pink one and hopes I'll have another girl to give the blue one to.  Otherwise, she'll just get both.

Lovely quilts! I have some of the flower faerie fabric but haven't figured out to use it just yet! This is a lovely layout!
