Two much fun!

After completing the big queen size Celebration Stars, shown in my last post, I hopped to and began making scrappy baby quilts. I don't make the traditional cute and cuddly teddy bears and lambs. I make baby quilts like I make everything else, scrappy and happy. That is my style, so deal. I may have mentioned that my granddaughter, Becky, is pregnant with, not one, but two babies! Both boys, and yes, identical twins. She is thru the moon with happiness and I am grateful that she is young and healthy! So here are portions of the quilts I am creating for this double bundle of joy. Becky, if you are reading this close your eyes NOW!

 So far the center measures 30 inches. There is more to come. Such a little boy quilt, don't you think?

 

Here is number two baby quilt, again 30 inches in the center. Both will have pieced borders. I am having such fun with these little quilts! You may notice a few fabrics from my Celebration Stars in these quilts. Well, the fabric was sitting right there saying "me-me-me"! It is hard to say no to fabric. The other sweet thing about making these quilts is that I have my boxes of pre-cut scraps standing by waiting for the chance to go on stage. In this case I used pre-cut two inch squares. I stayed with the same blue in both quilts for uniformity, and the same light background gives the scraps a chance to sparkle. 

OK Becky, you can open your eyes now. (I sure hope she like them!)

Marcie - The baby quilts are wonderful! It is nice that they aren't strictly "baby" because they can be used for many years. Congrats to Becky

Boys are the best, of course I am prejudiced. Beautiful quilts, Marcie.

I love those quilts! I'm stars and scrappy are two of my favorite things. I'm trying to decide what to do for my new grandbaby that will be arriving next summer, scrappy is looking good to me!

Polly said...

Yeah right! I had to look. I saw the title and thought "Oh goody, is this about my boys?"
The quilts look perfect and wonderful and I love them.
See, I told you making two quilts would be twice as much fun.

Omigosh, these quilts are going to be the most charming baby boy quilts! Love them. My dad is a twin but not identical. I was sooo sick in my early pregnancies that they thought I might be carrying twins. Hope they are full term and healthy babies!

Janet said...

I just love your baby quilts!! All those lovely scrappy colors. The boys and their mom are sure to love them.
