Quilted Friday

I was thinking-- I would love to see your quilted creations as well as your clothing items.  So once in a while I am going to host a quilted party on Fridays!  You can link up anything 'quilty'.

My quilty goodness for the month is for these two:



My sister-in-law's twinners!  They arrived last week, 5 weeks early and weighing in at 5 lbs. 10 ozs. and 5 lbs. 15 ozs.  Aren't they sweet?

And I don't know what it is, but I find it so fun to make stuff for twins!  Maybe it is because I love color, and with twins I get to make two of everything in different colors.  Like quilts, for instance:




Chevron stripes!  Love it.  I was suprised at how difficult this one turned out to be.  Maybe I just suck at cutting properly or something, but my squares had a really hard time matching up.  Thankfully, by the time they are quilted and washed, it is harder to see all the little mis-matches.

And for the back: 



Oooooo!  I LOVE these fabrics!  They are from Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet II line.

Love those baby quilts!! What a great idea to use the solids on the front and the print on the back!

I don't have a finish to share, but I am just beginning to quilt a quilt with a bunch of Sandi Henderson fabric!!

I'm new to your blog and I LOVE these quilts! Did you use a pattern or could you elaborate on how you made the squares?I'm working on my second quilt right now, a rainbow I spy quilt. I'm enjoying the quilting bug and am already thinking about making one for my baby girl
