Twin Secret Santa Quilts

Ok, I'm trying to catch up on some finishes. These were made with a pattern from Moda Bake Shop called Scrappy Avalon Summer. It called for charm packs etc. as usual (that's what they want you to buy) but I went to my local quilt shop (Joann's) and bought several 1/2 yards to make my own scheme :) Each quilt took about 10 hours to make. The HSTs took the longest. I used the draw the line method (my favorite) and my Bloc Loc ruler (love it!) The instructions on the website were just okay. Sometimes it wasn't too clear for me, but I made it work. I would have done the 4 patches differently since I wasn't using charm packs. I would have just cut them to size rather than trim down. It's a great and super easy pattern to do... and it has a great scrappy quilt effect!

Anyway, you are probably wondering why the post title says Secret Santa. I made these for 2 office Secret Santa parties, so they were given away to unsuspecting co-workers: 1 in my office and 1 in my husband's office. I have to say that they ended up with 2 very deserving people!
