More Babies

My great nephew and his wife are expecting twin boys. As usual I made them baby quilts. I did not want them to be the same, but still somehow "go together". I used flannel and a very simple patchwork pattern. I hope these quilts will be used and dragged around and machine washed often.




This pattern calls for two coordinating fabrics with one contrast for the inner border and the binding.




I quilted them on my mostly-unused Sweet Sixteen and it behaved itself very nicely. It allowed me to do much more quilting than I usually do on a baby quilt.

On this one the two fabrics went together too well and it's a little hard to see that it is actually two different fabrics. Note to self..choose fabrics that have more contrast the next time.



I still love the animal print and the big polka dots and the colors.

Now I just have to make the labels, sew them on and get them shipped off to Baltimore.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
