The Barnyard's are DONE! :D

It was a VERY busy sewing day :)  I like it that way!  First I sewed the binding on the Stars of the Barnyard quilt and then finished it off by hand.  I really like the hand sewing part!

Up in the tree with the blossoms :)

So, the upside down Little Tikes picnic table in all of my pics is starting to crack me up ;)

Stars in the Barnyard is just relaxing on the porch ;D

Once I got this baby done, I started on the Baby Barnyard quilt.  The Baby Barnyard is made from scraps from the Stars of the Barnyard quilt...even the back.  I made 1.5" red gingham sashing and a 3" border, also in gingham.  I did have to make the two little blocks on either side of the animal block in the center.  They were a bit more difficult than I thought they would be :p  In keeping with my frugal goal, I went totally scrappy for the binding.  There were two fabrics from the Stars of the barnyard that I did not use in the Stars of the Barnyard quilt that I used here in the Baby Barnyard.  They were too girly for the little boy for whome the Stars of the Barnyard is for.  Here is the photo shoot.
