Some good friends of ours were blessed with twins! They didn’t want to know the babies’ sexes until the birth, so that gave me a good reason to procrastinate on the quilts that I wanted to make for them. Initially I had some gender neutral fabric picked out, but never got the motivation to start on them. The babies arrived a few weeks early, a boy and a girl! At that point, I tossed aside the idea of gender neutral.
I took a day trip to this shop and found some cute fabric for the quilts. I used the same fabric line for both quilts-Vivian’s quilt included mostly chocolate brown, pinks, and oranges, and Carson’s quilts included mostly chocolate brown, greens, and blues.
I did some simple strip piecing, cut the strips to form square blocks, and twisted and turned the blocks until I found a layout that I liked. I didn’t want to go overboard on the twin theme, so I used a different layout for each quilt. I intended for the quilts to be 36″ by 42″, but my half yard cuts were a little bit short. They turned out to be 36″ square, which I think is a just fine size for itty bitty babies to snuggle in!
