For Two Little Dudes

23 Feb

I actually finished these quilts months ago and am just getting around to posting about them now. I made these quilts for a special friend of mine when she was expecting twins. I wanted to get them done as soon as possible in case they were born early. Turns out everything went super well and they stayed in until 36 weeks! They were born last weekend and everyone is happy and healthy at home.

These were actually a group gift, so even though I did the work the sentiment (and purchases) was from a group of women. Photo credit goes to my awesome friend Lindsay who not only took the photos but delivered them to the mom-to-be before Christmas.

I used Elizabeth Hartman’s Crazy Nine Patch Lattice pattern for both quilts and delicious Fanfare flannel for the backs and bindings.

I quilted them with random wavy lines. I just used my walking foot and moved the quilts around as I went. It was hard on the shoulders but quite easy to do otherwise.

These were really fun to do and I hope the boys enjoys many years of snuggles under them.
