As soon as I finished the quilt for my one-year-old nephew, I had two more to make for two new nephews! That’s right, my sister-in-law had twin boys this past winter. My mother-in-law now has five grandchildren, and only one of them is a singleton.
I like to make twin quilts coordinated-but-not-matchy, as a general rule. They are, after all, two unique people. Should they not have their own quilts? And yet, there’s no denying that twins – identical or not – have a particular connection to one another that is more than just your typical sibling. So maybe their quilts should have a little extra connection, too.
Or maybe that’s just me over-thinking things.
At any rate, these are both made from 6″ (finished) half-square triangle blocks, and they’re both half solids, half prints. But the layouts and the colors and the quilting are different.
I even seem to have “assigned” them reasonably well. The red/gray(green) quilt is a bit bolder and louder, as is baby O. The yellow/teal feels a bit more mellow, which fits nicely with baby A. Yay for that!
