Perfect Pillows for the Fraternal Twin Quilts!

Before I share the second of the Fraternal Twin Quilts, I have to show you the pillows I made for the room.

The Geometric Bear pattern by Quiet Play:

and the Geometric Squirrel!

Piecing these two blocks was just the right sewing therapy I needed on this recent rainy weekend.

Here's a sneak peek at the room with the pillows.

The color scheme may seem odd but when you see it al together I think you'll agree that these two forest animals are indeed playing well together in our house in the woods!

Have a lovely day!  Hug someone you love!

P.S. I have not been receiving emails when comments are posted so please accept my apology for not responding!  I'm sure there is a fix out there to Blogger that I need to implement.  Wish me luck!

Finished - Breaking Up Irish Chain

Hi! Remember me? It's been a wonderful and busy 2018. I've even been able to get a little sewing done.  Miraculously I've finished both of the Fraternal Twin Quilts that I told you about months ago.

The first twin quilt is the Breaking Up Irish Chain pattern by Melissa Corry.  I love this modern take on the Irish Chain. A fun and fast quilt to piece.  Hooray!  Elements I am using to coordinate the twin quilts are the obvious use of Kona Aloe, Kona White, a shared fabric pull and quilting patterns.  

I find quilting the swirl motif so relaxing!  You'll see that I used some swirls on the second quilt as well.

These quilts will live on twin beds in a frequently used guest room.  Adding some fun blocks will give guests something more to enjoy!

Thanks for your patience with me!
