Patriotic Quilts No. 1 and No. 2

The last two baby quilts this week... are two patriotic quilts!  

I have no idea where all this red, white and blue fabric came from. {I bought it... had cut it into 4 1/2" squares, but just not sure when, or what my intentions were? LOL}  But in an effort to finish up some projects and use up some of my stash and scraps... I made these two quilts with it.

They both went together really quick... I did simple quilting on both, and picked up some fun backing at JoAnn's... I used left overs from one quilt for binding and a red and white polka for the other binding.

This is No. 2 and this one was really quick and I've seen similar quilts around blog land.. A great way to use up scraps for sure!  And it would be great for left over Charm Squares from other projects.

I thought this little patriotic doggy print was pretty darn cute....
