Well I told the twin grandbabies to take their time in there with Momma all around . . so to speak. I explained that I needed just a bit more time to finish their quilts. They are such patient little girls. The quilts are now finished. So. Our arms are open! I promised them i would not make identical quilts. What fun is that anyway. For one I used the Cut-and-Turn block that I showed you in a post last Nov. 19th. It was a demo at our quilt guild meeting. The other was an adorable fabric that I found at my friend Sandi's quilt shop in Ashland Oregon. . . Fabric of Vision. Then I rushed them to All Washed Up Quilts to be quilted. I left very little instruction since they are the quilters and I am not. They hit it! I love the whimsical magic they used to transform these quilts.
Anyway. here are some pics. And I'm sure that when the grandbabes see these they'll come a flying out - to get First Pick!
Just loved this little print.
Bit of a "cheater" pattern.
The picture of the quilt back seems to have gotten lost somewhere. I just wrapped the backing around to the front to create a simple binding.
That was easy!
Both quilts are bigger than the normal crib size.
|I like the back too don't you?! Momma likes modern fabric|
so i sacrificed my last piece of an old favorite from Amy Butler.
Looks much better here than crammed in that fabric cabinet!

solid block for the alternate.
For the simple Cut-and-Turn Block instructions just go to my old post dated November 19, 2011. Or click on the link at the beginning of this post. The previous post provides a much better contrast of colors and also shows how to execute the block.
