Quilt Twins Week: Day Three
Another day, another set of twins. First, a funny story. My 3rd daughter was just a year old or so. My husband's sister just discovered she was pregnant - with twins! I asked my husband, "Where did that come from? Whose side of the family?" And he said: "My side."
I NEVER KNEW THAT. I had single pregnancies with each one. Little did I know that I could have had twins!
Now for my quilt twins. This pattern has shown up in a variety of fabrics. The first one appeared in my second book, Supersize 'Em Quilts (2009, Martingale).
|Big Block Stars: 80" x 80". 30" block|
This pattern is a 16 page digital pdf that includes patterns for 3 quilts. Let's see some of the others in this "twin" family. Yes, I know Halloween is behind us, but this is a fun quilt using ANY novelty prints.
|Trick or Treat Mice: 42" x 42"|
I made it a few years ago for Windham Fabrics using their Cottage Joy collection. Isn't this the sweetest? Again, a 30" center block. Outer pieced borders take it up to about 40" square, perfect for a small child.

And in Christmas fabrics. This is just a digital rendition using the Holly, Jolly Christmas collection from Windham.

And another Christmas quilt using "Oh, Christmas Tree" fabrics by - you guessed it - Windham! I finished quilting this in August.

The patches are large and the center goes together very quickly. It works with just about any personality of fabrics. And, remember: you can make 4 blocks and get a really large (80" x 80") quilt like the one at the top.
Hope you enjoy seeing my "family doubles." I'll see you on another day for even more Look Alikes in fabric!
