    Beautiful gift for the twins. You've done a wonderful deed and a wonderful job on the sewing, too; the white lines really set off the colorful blocks nicely.

    May I ask if there's a name for that design?

    I really like it! You certainly have created some treasures for them. They will remember her whenever they use their quilts.

    I didn't use a pattern. I just took a square and cut it at a diagonal and mixed them up and put smashing in between. I liked the white smashing vs the tan sashing I did for the second. But they both turned out beautiful because of the bright colors. The only truly hard part was using the knits with cottons. It made sewing it a challenge. But the end result was worth it and the kids loved them. I made them each a memory bear as well with some velour robes from their grandmother as well. She was a fun and special friend and it was a joy to be able to do this for her grandchildren b I felt like she was in the room with me and smiling and excited.
