A month or two ago I got a baby shower invitation for a friend of mine that I hadn't seen in a while. It was a little bit of a surprise, because I didn't know she was pregnant, although I knew that she was trying. The catch was that it was a surprise baby shower, so I couldn't call her up and congratulate her! Instead, I made arrangements to get together for dinner ASAP :)
In my head I was trying to think of what kind of baby quilt I wanted to make for her. Dresden plates? Stars? I wasn't sure.
We got together for dinner, and although I wasn't surprised she was pregnant, I was surprised to hear it was twins! That means I needed to make TWO baby quilts.
In some slight way, this made it easier, because I could do one star quilt and one dresden plate quilt. My friend showed me pictures of some gorgeous murals that she had painted on the nursery walls, in a red, orange, and yellow color scheme. I love learning about color schemes, so then I can make something to match!
I decided to add a little pop of green to each quilt, and bind them with the same green fabric. I like the little bit of contrast that it brings. Both quilts use the same fabrics, and I cut out what I needed for both quilts at the same time. This definitely made the job easier.
I'm very pleased with both of them, and I'm also glad they came together so quickly. Congrats, K!
