I am doing a happy dance today as I have finished another item that was on my projects to do list. I finished the quilts that I was making for one of Kristin's roommates from vet school. She had twin girls in early October, and as I'm sort of an expert on twin girls, Kristin asked me to make two quilts. Bridgett was doing the nursery in pink and brown, so I decided to do log cabin quilts in pink and brown. I know from experience that twins like things to be the same and yet not the same. So I chose different pink plaids for the center blocks, and used the same pink plaid for the bindings. And voila, the same but different.
This is quilt #1. I used a bright pink plaid for the centers and binding, and put it together so that there was a brown cross in the center, and four pink "diamonds" in the corners.
This is quilt #2, with light pink plaid for the block centers and the quilt binding. It has four brown "diamonds" and pink diamond in the center
I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. The quilts are 48" square and are backed with anti-pill fleece. Hope the mama and babies like them.
Now I have 3 Christmas stockings to make and I have to quilt my Mom's quilt. Hurry, hurry.
