Kid's Lap Quilts

When I saw this tutorial over at Katie did, I knew I had to make one, or ten! Note to self, make one in olive like hers.... With my nieces' birthday party this weekend, remember her from the photo pencils? she and her little sister are having a joint party on Saturday so everything's times two! Lucky for me these quilts are super cute AND super quick! 
 I love all the different colored threads making it simple and modern yet fun! I used some bright Alexander Henry lemon fabric for the binding. 
They are both chocolate brown on one side then either a pale yellow or pale lavender on the other (to match their rooms of course!).  I'm working on a doll for each too so I will post them when they are done plus some fab gift wrapping ideas I'll be using to complete the handmade package!
