Matching Pinwheel Quilts ... for Twins?

I've had these darling daisy fabrics for a long, long time and was waiting for just the right project to use them.

I decided they would make a great pair of matching quilts for sisters or twin baby girls or cousins ... my cousins and I always got the same gift from our grandparents, only in different colors ... I always loved that!

The pattern for the quilts is the same ... the traditional pinwheel in a contemporary set ... but each is done with a different set of daisy fabrics.

And I am quite taken with the backs ... I might even like
the backs better than the fronts!  I'm more and more drawn to the modern quilt movement ... I really enjoy the minimalism.

The fabrics used are coordinates from the same fabric line.
One set of fabrics are bright with small tidy daisies.

And the other set of fabrics has a more pastel effect with big bouncy daisies.

And my favorite free motion quilting with coiling swirly swirls.

The background is a crisp white tone on tone with
itty bitty flowers.

The backs are both set with green ... both are just darling.
One with little yellow daisies, and one with a bouquet of colorful little flowers.

Cute as can be and ready to ship.

These quilts are available for sale in my Etsy shop.

  2. Hi Lil Red Hen ... Thank you and I really like the backs too! I've been going thru my collection o'fabric to make a quilt like the backs. I have a wonderful Radio Flyer wagon fabric that would make a really cute 'the back is the front' quilt :}
