Twin quilts - a work in progress -

My lovely neighbours commissioned me a while back to make a set of quilts for twin babies recently born in the family. The quilts are supposed to be the same but different and should have each girl's name embroidered onto the quilt. I think that is a lovely touch indeed.

We worked the colour scheme out together. They wanted pinks of course, and some purples but also yellows and some contrasting colours that produce impact. That's when it hit me that my recently purchased bundles from Cotton & Steel were perfect in that I could literally choose from all three bundles as they are all colour coordinated.
I only added two other prints from stock, a dotty number from K. Fassett and the measuring tape fabric. I was able to include the lovely cats from the Hatbox collection and also the horses from the Mustang collection and they do look as if they are galloping through the quilt.

One down one more to go and then comes my favourite part which is quilting of course.


  1. Really lovely. Great colour scheme and some very pretty fabrics.

  2. I am sure they will treasure these for many, many years. Great job, very colorful and fun.


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
