Two finishes for the price of one

Ta da!  My Sliced Coins twin quilts are officially complete!


I'm so excited to share these quilts with you.  Why am I excited?  Other than the obvious super fun sensation of finishing off a new quilt, there's several reasons...

1. These quilts are going to my newest cousins, Kayla and Tristan, who were born in December (so I'm a bit behind!).
2. My first quilt finish for 2011 is a two-fer!
3. I'm actually checking something off my list of lofty quilty goals for this year.
4. I really loved working on these quilts.  These fabrics are so fun to play with; just seeing them every day made me smile.



Don't ask me to pick a favorite, it's just not possible.   I really love both of these quilts.  It was a lot of fun to get to play with lots of pink fabrics in Kayla's quilt for once, but I also really love all of the gorgeous blues in Tristan's quilt.  My son really covets that quilt; fortunately, there's a new quilt in the works for him, so I don't think he'll be too upset to see me ship this one off.

I had so much fun making these quilts that I am seriously considering making one more, so I can have something around my house to remind me of this super fun quilt-along.  And I definitely need to get my hands on more of Laurie Wisbrun's fabrics, they're just so much fun!

  15. Wow, those quilts are really fab! I love the blue one particularly - not least because I have a lot of the same fabrics in the boys quilt I'm working on at the moment :-)
