Design Wall... seeing double!

Husband's best buddy just became Grampa to twin boys.  The babies were born on Friday.  An unbelievable 7 pounds 6 and 8 pounds respectively.  Seriously, that is a whole lot of baby!  I started these quilts for them last week and the idea was that they would be similar but not identical.  We want to make sure there is some individuality after all!  So quilt number one is already a quilt top.  I made wonky-ish log cabins around 5" and 3" squares of Bugs in a Jar from the Backyard Baby line.  The cabins are just a whole heap of brights.  This quilt has big squares finishing at 12.5"  CUTE!

Quilt number two is similar but with just 3" squares of Bugs in a Jar and squares finishing at 7.5"  I finished all the squares this afternoon and just have to do the final organization and then stitch them altogether.  Yippee!  And if I did my quilt math correctly, the quilts will be almost exactly the same size.

Love the Bugs in a Jar fabric.  I found a great length of turquoise with a bit of white brushed cotton for the backs.  I went shopping in my stash... the great wall of fabric and was most delighted to find something appropriate in brushed cotton (flannelette).  Cozy for babies!  What is even more exciting was that I was able to use up more scraps for these quilts!

Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday on her newly updated, most fabulous blog!
