Default the evil ALIEN twin quilt

After taking an Augusta Cole class in August and (with a friend) purchasing an HQ 18 Avante with Pro Stitch, I decided to use my uneven log cabin blocks for two small baby quilt. One will be quilted with Edge to Edge and one will be custom quilted with feathers, loops, etc. These can be used as samples for customers who can decide which quilting technique they want.

quilts assembled > laid on floor > don't match > show husband who thinks one looks like alien > tried adding row > still looks like alien > slept on it > ripped out > normal twins > can proceed to borders

I kind of liked the alien. However, I can see how you would like to have both the same. They are lovely and very nicely pieced!
