My first finish(es) of 2014 are for my friend's beautiful twin boys who were born just a tad too early, but are well on their way to getting home with Mum and Dad. I'm hoping they get to snuggle under these soon...
Simple, colourful baby quilts - easy to make and easy on the eye! ;-)
For the quilting I used Aurifil threads in light blue (#5006) and green (#4093) and the wavy line design to create a bit of texture in the negative space.
|I am totally in love with Kona Breakers - there could be a lap sized version of this quilt coming to my house.|
I wanted a lighter binding to frame the quilts and my never ending supply of Architextures did the job perfectly. No prizes for guessing the backing....
Not a bad start to 2014...
