Claira's Quilts

My niece is pregnant (cute--just looks like she has a volleyball under her shirt) and her baby shower was today. I of course made a quilt for baby Claira. I love the name by the way!! Here is the quilt.
The pattern is a disappearing nine patch (one of my favorite patterns) and the material is from scraps that I had. I love the bright colors and the way it turned out.

I also made her quilt for her crib. This is only the second dresden plate pattern that I have done. I love the way it turned out. What do you think?

And here is a close up of the dresden plate.
