I’ve been quiet about this great project until today– my American neices’ 2nd birthdays! This has been such an enjoyable project and I love the result!
My sister-in-law requested the fabric (“Sophie” by Chez Moi for Moda) and it was delightful to work with for the girls. I wanted the quilts to be different but similar so I opted for circles and rectangles.
The circles quilt has FMQ stippling on just the white fabric, so the circles stand out more. It’s all machine sewn except for finishing the binding.
I opted for “stitch in the ditch” for the rectangles quilt which makes it a very poofy quilt!
To tie in with each other, the quilts have a strip of the opposite quilt for the backs (i.e. the circle quilt has a strip of rectangles on its back) and they have binding made from the opposite’s backing fabric.
