Several months ago, my dear friend, Fi, announced she was pregnant . . . with twins . . . and they're both girls! While I don't have kids, nor do I want any, I certainly enjoy making and buying baby things for friends! I mean, seriously, Target kills me with the baby cuteness!
Anyway, I knew I wanted to make quilts for the babies. (Confession: Before she announced her pregnancy, I'd already made one baby quilt for Fi, though it's not one of these, and planned to finish another i had in the works, which I've since finished and gifted.)
I wanted to make similar, but not identical quilts for the girls, and I knew I wanted to use Anna Maria Horner fabric, which Fi loves. I picked AMH's newest line, Pretty Potent, which worked out great, since Fi made crib skirts from part of this same line.
I quilted this one, which finished at 48" x 60", with a different design in each section.
I really just used the pattern for inspirations, making up my own similar blocks and putting them together with lots of negative space between.
I quilted this one, which finished at 46" x 57", with an all over design shown below.
And here's Fi with both quilts. Isn't she just adorable?
