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!

I've been wanting to post some of my recent projects but Blogger is telling me my picture space is all used up! I didn't even know I had a limit! So until I figure out what to do about it, I'm not going to be able to post anything :(. Anyone else had that issue?

Hope you holiday season is blissful (and not just stressful:)!
