Twin quilts - a pair of finished quilts

The twin quilts my neighbors commissioned from me are finished and I think might already be on the way to their new owners.

The brief was to make twin quilts that are the same but different. So I used the same fabric (almost all from the 1st Cotton & Steel collection) but arranged them a little different for each quilt and my customer wanted the name of each of the girls embroidered on them. I think this is a really nice touch and will make them special for the little girls.

I quite enjoyed making these two little beauties and quilted with variegated threads  along the seam lines and added a few in between.

I love this colour combination with the pinks and yellows/mustard thrown in between. The dark blues add contrast and focus.

I added a spotty binding to each of them but again differentiated here and chose a yellow and a turquoise one.

The backs are solids with a little pieced strip of left over fabric to compliment the fronts.

So cute....


  1. The fabric and color combo is so great and I love their hand stitched names to personalize them and so they don't get them mixed up.

  2. They will e treasured for sure. Wonderful keepsakes

  3. I'm sure these are going to be much loved, the cotton & steel fabrics work brilliantly!

  4. Nice fabric selection. Good job with the personalization.


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.
