2 quilt tops done!
These are the dorm quilts for my twin niece and nephew who are starting college this year. They are going to separate schools so this will be a huge transition for them both.
This is for Emma. I used a Moda jelly roll from the Sanae fabric line Arcadia. Arcadia is a couple years old, but I think the colors and prints are very fresh and young. (I hope Emma thinks so too!) The finished size is 52" x 64".
I didn't have a wide fabric for the back so I used all the left over jelly roll pieces to add a section between pieces of the primary backing fabric. I inserted it off center so I wouldn't have to try to line it up when sandwiching!
Backing (it's not really THIS wonky; it's just not ironed here!)
The blocks are very simple because I wanted the details of the fabric prints to show.
This quilt is for Robert. I've already posted this picture on the 9 Patch Pizzazz thread so I won't say much about it here. The backing will be a deep blue Minky with a thin flannel batting. The finished size is 52" x 70".
I'm hoping to get them both sandwiched and quilted in a week but it may take me two. The quilts are very different but I like the way both turned out.
