I working again on catching up on some of the finishes I had not gotten round to sharing yet. So this week I want to share with you the 2 baby quilts I made at the beginning of the year.

At the end of November 2015, my brother and sister-in-law became the proud parents of twins baby girls.

I wasn't quite ready to send in December then January came and went, but in the first week of February I send the quilts and am happy to say the girls (and their papa and mama) were extremely happy with them.

I chose a disappearing 9 patch block for both quilts, because I love how the cut up blocks can give a scrappy look while still coming together easy and swiftly.

The girls are fraternal, like my boys. So for the twin element I chose the same pattern, but to emphasise their differences I chose for a few differentiations. To start with the fabric: I decided to go for 2 totally different bundles, but both quits are mostly Dashwoodstudio fabrics.

I also differentiated in the quilting. The first quilt I quilted with meandering hearts all over, while the second one got meandering flowers.

This was the first foto shoot where my oldest could help me, it was great fun.
