I finished up the set for my friend who is expecting twin girls. She told me that she’s doing her nursery in greens & tans, but I can’t resist pink! I figured this way, they will match but add a fun pop of pink. To my knowledge, my friend doesn’t know about my blog, so here’s hopin’ it’s still true!
I used the same fabrics in both quilts, but one is simple squares and the other is a zigzag quilt. I had fun making them both, but it’s official that I just don’t like working with triangles as much as squares. I’m just a squares kinda girl I guess!
In looking at this next photo, I’m made highly away of the fact that I could be a bit more of a perfectionist in my quilting… I need to work on that. Just a tad more diligence and this line wouldn’t look so stupidly wonky. I generally like wonky, but this was unintended wonk…
And the zigzag!
I broke a few needles quilting these triangles… how does one make the bump of layers where all of the triangles meet, thinner? Is there a trick or tip I don’t know?
And a couple of close ups:
And on a completely different, yet quilt related, note this is so great!
