A pair of beautys for my babies in Germany

toolgrannyJune 14, 2014

(that should read beauties)

Finished my pair for the twins due in August. Will try and make a couple of other gifts for their two sisters before I send it.

I loved this fabric collection the first moment I saw it. It also has a collection in yellows as well as the peach and the lime. It's a Moda collection called Mirabelle by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts, a local lady. I just did a simple Irish Chain pattern.

I will post backings on next message.

Your quilts are so precious! You did a wonderful job piecing and quilting. I especially like your radius corners, or whatever they're called. It must be so hard to have them so far away. Hope you can all get together soon.

Very sweet, Linda. The simplicity of the Irish Chain really brings out the border fabric and it is very eye appealing! You're right.....they are beauties! Wonderful job.

And we have two new babies in Germany as of early this morning! Two little boys to be welcomed by their two sisters. What a joy. This woman carried TWINS to full term, one 6-1/2# and other 6-3/4#, both 19-1/2" long. Can you imagine! I don't think I could have done it without whining a lot.

We are anxiously awaiting our pictures. Everyone wanted at least one boy and since they didn't want to know the sex, it was a wonderful surprise. I'm not the official Grandma but can congratulate the ones over there.

Oh, Linda. She must have felt miserable! The things we do for the good of our children! Bet she's happy to have them in the nursery now. :-) Congratz to the family.

Your quilts are really beautiful - I missed them the first time because I was IN GERMANY!!!

How exciting to have 2 little boys now.

Did you quilt them on your long arm?
