Beginning of Two

One of my best friends from college is getting married. Yay! She is also pregnant! Yay! And she is also having twins. For reals?! So that means I get to make two quilts for her daughters to be. I\’ve been wanting to make a wonky pinwheel quilt for awhile now, but have not had a good reason to make one! Or two! Here are the fabrics I picked out. The colors are aqua and lime green.

I love the way the blocks are turning out but boy are they time consuming. People tell me that I am a very fast seamstress and each block is taking me a solid 1-1.5 hours. I might as well be paper piecing these babies! I have 3 done and the rest all laid out in fabric order so I\’m going to try and knock the dirt top out this weekend.

As for the second top, I was going to do it the same but now after seeing how long this one is taking and thinking about wanting to have them have their own unique quilts I think I am going to go with a different design. I have a good chunk of HST\’s already cut but I do have some yardage I can play with too if I don\’t go too outside the box.

I will work on the design of the second one throughout the marathon it will take to complete the first set of blocks…. Oh the options!
