Boy Quilts for Twins


I think?

I washed them yesterday and I love how crinkly they are!

And I even remembered to put the label on, instead of last minute, like usual. I have to admit, I will never put a label on a quilt without a frame ever again.  It just makes the label more intentional and a part of the quilt rather than an after thought like I think some of my quilt labels have looked in the past!

And I am REALLY happy with the fact that I chose two different animals.

I really tried to make what are matching quilts, different.  By two different animal appliques, different color orders of their names, and also swapping different fabrics on each quilt to make them not quite exactly the same!

 The only thing I have left to do is to clip some stray threads from washing and I have one debate.

Do you think the giraffe and elephant need a smile? 

 I am debating adding some on real quick before I mail them off tomorrow!


  1. Those are so cute. You did a great job!

  2. I think they need a smile!

  3. I'm in LOVE with that Jackson quilt! I showed it to my husband and he told me Jack is too old for a baby quilt :( I also think they look perfect. What did you decide?

  4. Your quilts are so cute.
    How did you make your label? I really like that it is framed.

    1. Thanks Linda!

      I print them on colorfast fabric sheets like these:

      Then I sew strips leftover from my binding or scraps around the square. Then I fold them over and press. Then handsew them to the back! I used to just blanket stitch the squares, but lately I have been trying to mimic either the binding or a shape like this hexagon on this quilt! LABEL: QUILT:

      Hope that helps!!!!


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
