And they're having a boy and a girl. Instant nuclear family, eh?
Of course, my first moster-ly duty was to make them quilts.
I used a couple of my own designs for each quilt and the rest is mostly Denyse Schmidt and Leah Duncan. With a few other ones thrown in.
But the best thing is that it has been washed a gazillion times so it is super soft. Perfect for little ones. Although, the quilts are maybe a tad big for them for now. But I wanted them to be large enough to use for several years. And they are large enough that they will work nicely as lap quilts when the kids are older.
Of course I tied the quilt, you know I love that. It also has an added benefit of being easy to repair in case one or two gets loose at some point. My sister can just tie a new knot instead of repairing some quilting.
I am really happy with how these quilts turned out! But in hindsight, maybe that much white isn't the best idea for a kid's quilt? ;-)
I guess any stains will just be part of the story of the quilt...
Sadly, I will not be handing these to my sister in person, my parents will bring them to the US. But I did show them to my sister via Skype, so they have been 'revealed'. I think she likes them. :-)
