A super nice couple--a 3rd grade teacher with the most beautiful singing voice and the orchestra instructor (see fabric choices :lol: )--just started their family with twins! I have never made quilts for babies born to school folks (not enough time!) but I really wanted to welcome this wee pair with something.
I searched magazine for patterns that would work with black and whites with splashes and found this idea in McCall's Quilting Jan/Feb 2011, pg 28, Across the Spectrum. I just changed everything about the color.
Binding will be green. Backs will be kid prints--one with cats because the parents love them. I will get them sandwiched soon, but I can never "see" the quilting, so I need your vision. Remember, I'm a novice quilter, some stippple, echo, sitd, and there's one flower I can do. :lol: So go easy on me.
Also should white thread be used in the b+w blocks and a variegated primary in the others? Please give me your ideas on that too. :-D Thank you!!!
Ava's--not a great photo color wise.
Close ups so you can "see" the quilting!
