Twins...Toddler Quilts that is!


On Friday evening I took a little time out and finished stitching the binding on this toddler quilt. It didn't take too long because it was already three quarters finished when I worked on it last. So, now I have another little finish!
Delightful Too!

I started this quilt because I had leftover bits, pieces and hunks and chunks from a toddler quilt that I made called Delightful. I wanted to use up as many of the smaller pieces as I could so they would not get put into my overflowing scrap bins.

Delightful Too!
The last time I showed this quilt on my blog it was in July and it was just a flimsy. It wasn't the greatest looking picture but, hopefully, now you can see how pretty it really is. I used up lots of the leftover hunks of fabric when I pieced the back as well lots of little teeny tiny triangles and I think it turned out funky and fun. The binding is scrappy made from leftover strips of fabric.

I chose to quilt it with a pantograph called Popcorn and I think it looks like clouds - I can imagine that the geese are flying in the clouds. :)

As I was looking back to find out the details about the the first quilt - Delightful - I see that I didn't post about actually finishing it. Well, it did get done and I quilted it with a pantograph called Blowin Wind and I finished it with a zig zag fabric for the binding. The binding didn't turn out quite as I had expected because the zigs zagged unexpectedly! :))

I am linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts where Kathy encourages all of us to take some time out of our day to slow down, relax and, hopefully, do some handwork.

I don't think that I am going to get any sewing time in today because Thanksgiving preparations are under way!!!

Hi Ellen

Your twins are not identical but are made up from the same cloth. They both look wonderful and are quite delightful.

Love sis

Both of those quilts are so pretty. What a wonderful way to use up scraps.
