Basketball Twins

I made the two tops for the twin baby girls this week. They are due in early October.  So I still have time to quilt and bind them.

The parents are big NBA fans, he likes the Knicks (NY) and she likes the Warriors (CA).  I found this pattern in an old issue 2013 of QuiltMaker, it’s called “Go Baby”.  I changed the colors and added a simple border, to finish at 48″.  The backing is NBA team themed, and I matched the top colors to it.

I had a marathon Farmers Wife block weekend, I was behind 8 blocks.  I did five and will finish the other three later today.  Here are Pricilla, Prudence, Rosemary, Ruby, and Primrose.

Lastly I finished piecing my “Generally French” top.  I saw this pattern originally at the Hancocks of Paducah website as the Petite Dauphine Quilt.  I was simple enough to draft in EQ7 and I used up most of my French General fabric collection.  It finished at 96″ square with 576 blocks, half solid and half four patch.  I ended up piecing it in sections of 36 blocks and then putting them together, it seemed easier than making long strips.IMG_1911

I may add a border of rectangles or a matching floral print I have, it’s large enough without them, but looks a little unfinished to me.

Linking up with Judy today for Design Wall Monday at Patchwork times .

One thought on “Basketball Twins

  1. You’ve been busy. Cute idea you captured for the twins and a nice design as well. I notice you have two fabrics consistent between the two quilts. Sort of significant I’d say. Are the Farmers Wife blocks named or is this something you’ve done for your project? Either way thought it was cute thing to do. Great way to use up French General scraps. Enjoy your sewing =^.^= Sandi
