Second set of commissioned twin quilts! I had a lot of fun working through the design process with these guys. I started off with a very complicated busy design, slept on it, and then edited heavily in the morning. Below on the left you can see the start of my design (marker, tape & paper), and on the right is where the design ended up (EQ8). I love the final design!
In total, there are 6 different blocks in this quilt; measurements and piecing instructions are saved in my story highlights on Instagram. (Click here to see my highlights.) You can also check out #stellarsamplerquilt for more pictures of the quilts.
I cut all the fabric pieces at once and worked hard to keep all of the pieces for each block organized. Once the tops were pieced, I backed them with pink and blue fabrics from designers who now work for Ruby Star Society, and quilted straight lines.
I bound the quilts with a small gray striped print from Figo Fabrics.
These quilts will soon be off to new twins and I hope that they get lots of use and love - as always!
These quilts finish at 40" square.
All solid fabrics are Kona solids from Robert Kaufman. For the blue quilt, I used Candy Blue & Regatta. For the pink quilt I used Melon & Peach. The background fabric for both quilts is Snow - a slightly off white fabric.
