The Twins

I had a wonderful excuse to make a couple of baby quilts, twins! My cousin, who had had a difficult time conceiving for years, finally had twins. We are so thrilled for them and I couldn't wait to meet the new little ones. We had a chance to when we traveled up to St. George, UT for Thanksgiving.

The nursery colors are pink, orange, green and aqua. At first I was going to make one big quilt, but I decided they both needed their own. I still wanted them to match, so I thought chevron quilts in all of their colors, adding green to both to further tie them together.
I've been wanting to make a chevron quilt for a while and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I just made half-square triangles from 5 1/2" squares and sewed them together in rows.
 For the fabrics I used lots of polka dots from Riley Blake and little elephants from Michael Miller.
On the girl quilt I free-motion quilted little swirls and every once in while added a heart. On the boy quilt I quilted lines to keep it more masculine.

I wanted to quilts to be cozy warm so I put minky on the back. It actually quilts quite well!
I loved stitching these up for my dear cousin. Unlike my husband who has countless cousins and extended family my extended family is quite small, so it means even more to me. I was in tears when I met the new little bundles and here they are!

Little Mac, who is super mello and looks like his mom. And precious Brizbyn who looks more like her dad but is every bit a dainty little lady. I loved holding her and didn't want to give her up! Wish I lived closer so I could see these angels more often. They are just yummy! :)
I'm glad they will have a little piece of me with them!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
had to tell someone!
