Baby Girl Quilt

After finishing the quilt for the boy twin, I started out on a quilt for the girl twin.  Once again I started the process by just making some random blocks.

I had some left over HST scraps from snowball blocks on my daughter's quilt, so I used those to make pinwheels.


I fussy-cut some of Aneela Hooey's Little Apples and Into the Woods fabric, which became the centers for a couple stars and churn dash blocks.

Churn Dash

Then when I had my pinwheels, stars, and churn dash blocks, I laid them all out on the floor.  I decided to tie them all together with stripes in the background, using all fabrics I had stashed.


I backed it in the same print as the boy quilt, and quilted it with a loopy pattern.

Here is the boy kitten my son named Rex (short for T-Rex).  I didn't manage to get a full picture of this quilt without a kitten in it.  Rex seemed to think the photo shoot was of him and not the quilts.


These quilts certainly don't match, but I think they are coordinated enough to be considered a pair.

Twin Quilts

Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. Those are darling - far more creative than the two I finished for my friends' twins. They will be 1 on Saturday. And so nice quilted, too. I would give the teal and white one to the girl and the other darker/brighter one to the boy -jmo. They're both great!

  2. Oops, I got it wrong - you are giving that darling teal/white quilt to the girl twin. Just precious.

  3. Beautiful, both the quilt and the cat!

  4. What charming and fun quilts. Love the fussy cutting.

  5. Lovely finish - like how your grew your quilt. Cute cat too!

  6. Those are so cute! I love all the different blocks you incorporated. Great job!

    Oh, and the kitty is super adorable, too ;)

  7. Fabulous! I love the approach you took. I need to try a less planned approach to my quilts.
