Bouncing Baby Boy Quilts

In the past month I've gotten word that two of the young women in my life, non-relatives, are both expecting their second baby boy, early next year.  One is my haircutter; I met Emily when we both worked at Barnes and Noble.  The other is my youngest daughters' best friends' daughter-in-law, Shauna.  The girls don't know each other, Emily lives in Lake Elsinore and Shauna lives in Iowa, so I thought I'd make my life easier and make them duplicate quilts.  

This is the fabric I'm going to use, Camp Sur by Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics.  I purchased this stack of half yard cuts, a while ago, just in case!  I'm going to make a mini, about 40x40", of this quilt.

I debated a bit about which "white" to use for the background strips; I think I'll use the top jelly roll, of "natural".

I've been busy cutting away.  I cut a 5" strip WOF from each fabric, and sub-cut 3 5x5" blocks; then cut the remainder of each strip in half, for the two reflection quilts.

I have a couple of ideas about what I'll do with the 5x5" charms, so as long as I was cutting away, I thought why not cut them all at once.

May your bobbins always be full,
