Twin baby quilts

I finished up a pair of cute baby quilts for a commission.  For twins who are on the way!  I made a couple of pillow sleeves to go along with ‘em too.


Why can’t I ever coordinate photo taking with no fold lines in the quilts??

These were fun to sew up. I haven’t been working with lots of white or these colors in awhile so it was fun to go back to them for a project!

On another note, a dear friend of mine is a finalist for the Dwell Room for Improvement contest. You don’t have sign in or anything to vote for her, so please do! It just takes two quick clicks and a free living room make over could be hers so vote for her! Thank you, thank you!

    How did you learn to machine quilt? I have been wanting to learn for years, but have never known how to get started. Do you mind sharing what kind of sewing machine you have and your feelings on how it works for machine quilting? The quilts are AMAZING!!

    I am beyond delighted with the end result and can’t wait for the babies to arrive so I can get some photos with them AND the quilts! Thanks for making the entire process such a breeze…

    Beautifully made. I love the blue and orange. They remind me of a fall day.

    What a fun pair!

    Oh, how fun! Turquoise and orange are my intended nursery colors, so I just love seeing baby-things made (since I don’t get to start on my nursery until we’ve found a place to live and unpacked everything. A lot to do, and not a lot of time!

    Adorable!!! Are the colors from a specific line of fabric (if so would you be willing to share?)…or scrap?
