Simple Quilts

I tend to like the back of my quilts as much as the front, sometime even more. Just a hint of the design from the front, simple. After seeing this quilt a few months ago, I decided that I was going to make a couple of very simple baby quilts.

I've had a few of these sock monkey prints for awhile, but didn't really know what to do with them. Adding solids and polka dots to a simple quilt seemed a perfect fit. I started making a few blocks for each quilt.

This first quilt is for a friend of mine, due with baby boy #2 next this month.

A simple quilt still needed a bit of interest on the back.
Another view of the quilt.
And a bit of a close up of the quilting. A bit of pebble quilting for this one. I've never done any pebble quilting. I liked it for this large empty space.
This quilt is approximately 43x58.

My cousin had a baby boy (baby brother of twin boys,) um, several months ago. (I think if the baby isn't yet one, I'm still good, though. Right?) Anyway, same type blocks, different layout.
And, the polka dot back.

And, close up of the quilting. Simple stipple for this one.
This quilt is approximately 43x63.

Love the simple quilts!!!! Are they any easier to make?

Not easier, really, but definitely FASTER!

Saw the bright yellow one on Flikr and popped over.

Love it! The white border around the blocks really makes the colours within the blocks pop.

Obviously I am behind with blog reading, but have to say that I love these two quilts. They are very playful and cheery. Great job! =]
