A friend of ours asked if I'd make her twin nieces (who'll be born next month) quilts, and of course I said YES! By the way, she's a twin, and it's her twin who's having the twin girls! What the who?! Madness, I say.
She gave me the colours of the nursery, and asked that the two quilts be different. Having grown up with twin sisters, I know the importance of twins having their own identities. I try very hard not to refer to my sisters 'the twins' but it inadvertently slips out once in a while.
So I ended up with one with stars...
I wanted them to be different, yet kind of similar. My friend liked the idea of the solids, which I was very gleeful about because I thought it'd make the quilts rather timeless and not too cutesy. The quilting is a very simple crosshatch to keep the quilt super soft and cuddly.
The backing and binding are the same dark brown dot, which I just love love love! So cute! :)
I delivered the quilts yesterday and my friend absolutely loved them. PHEW! The baby shower's on Saturday so I'm looking forward to finding out if her twin sister loved them too :)
