I am full of excuses also. My excuses aren't quite as valid as making two babies so I will spare you the details :). I did have time to throw together these two squares.
Mardie, I had fun with this one. Initially I believe I was over-thinking it, once I simplified my expectations it was a breeze. I can imagine a family reading the Christmas story wrapped in this lovely quilt.
Camie, I finished this square while "wearing" a one-month-old and defending the sewing machine foot from an 18-month-old. I hope the handy work doesn't reflect the chaos that was going on while it came together. I hope you like and the fabrics work with your other squares. If not, please offer me a do-over.
