Finished Twin Quilts Round Two

Some of our good friends are expecting twin boys next month. These will be their first children and we couldn't be happier for them! I bought a bunch of this Wheels line thinking I would make a quilt for my son since he loves cars and trucks. But, the fabrics just sat there in my drawer, waiting. So I pulled them out, cut them into 5 1/2" squares, and set to work making two baby quilts.

The first, I laid out as a plus quilt.

I even pieced the back,

The other is a simple patchwork quilt.

With a more skiwampus pieced back. Oops.

I used prints from Riley Blake's Wheels line and added some extra fabrics, including Kona sage, Barbara Jones' Hip Holidays (the blue diagonal stripe), and Heather Bailey's Bijou Mod Beads.

I quilted the plus quilt with straight lines 1/4" on either side of each seam. For the patchwork quilt, I quilted three wavy lines per 5" square.

With my first set of twin quits, I opted to use similar designs with different fabrics. This time, I chose to use the same fabrics, but with different design layouts. I must say that I like this version better.

Each quilt measures approximately 35"x40".
