WiP Wednesday

It has been a long time since I've posted on a WiP Wednesday but here I am with a little work to show.

My cousin is VERY pregnant with twin girls and I am making these little quilts for her new babies.  I had been searching for just the perfect pattern to use for quite a while.  I wanted the two quilts to coordinate but not be exactly alike.  I couldn't get my mind settled on just one pattern until one day one of my favorite bloggers, Maureen, posted a simple little baby quilt she was making and then it "clicked" with me.  I decided to copy her simple little quilt and use a red/aqua/pink color combination.

 I think the appliqued letter just adds that little special touch to the quilts.  Plus, the twins will know exactly which quilt is theirs.

I'm going to quilt these myself so I'm pretty excited about that.
Have a great Wednesday! Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced...

Plus Quilt finished

I'm so happy to show you my new favorite quilt.  I am so in love with this color scheme right now, too bad it doesn't match anything in my house.  Ha!

During spring break my girls and I went to VA to visit The Grandmomma and she taught me how to use her longarm quilting machine.  I didn't do that great of a job making my "orange peel" pattern but at least I can say I did this one all by myself.  I'll do better with more experience I'm sure.

It is the perfect size for a lap quilt so it has already gotten a lot of use on our sofa.  I always have a quilt covering my legs when I'm sitting down.  Actually, I guess my girls have gotten more use out of it than I have because I haven't had much time to sit down lately.

Hope you have a great weekend!
