Another Item Crossed Off

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.

You did a wonderful job on those quilts for the baby twins. Thanks for the Kindle book recommendations, too. I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books a lot!

Hello from a Bingo Player on the Holly Jolly Blog... just stopped in to take a peek at your blog and found these GORGEOUS quilts. I love the color pallet and how you placed the blocks. Beautiful quilts! Merry Christmas!

Congratulations on a great finish! These quilts are lovely - I love the colours! I made a log cabin years ago in browns and oranges with a purple center. Once I got the top put together it was so hard to quilt because when I looked at it all I could think of was A & W with those colours! lol
