Or. What I did on my mandatory year end break. :-)
Apparently, I started these in September, but I got them finished yesterday.
I'm always stunned by how similar and how different the two girls are. One quilt definitely reads blue and the other one pink. La picked a binding that blends in with the quilt, El picked one that stands out. And the backing fabric for El's, really gave me pause (hot pink leopard print?), but when I looked at it in the context of the quilt front, it is fine.
I got them quilted and bound since Christmas. I got more free-motion quilt practice with big loopy cursive lower case e's. Not many tucks and the quilt stayed mostly true.
The girls are really happy with them.
