    Nearly Identical Quilts for Identical Twins

    My niece is having identical twin girls in a few weeks, so my sister and I made quilts for them. The green one is completed, the pink one just needs to have the binding hand sewn. As soon as they are born, we'll put the tags on and mail them out.

    Good job. IMHO, 'similar but different' is a good choice for twins.

    Adorable! Awesome that you made them with the same pattern but different colors. They'll appreciate that when they are older. My sister had triplets (girls) and they don't mind getting things alike but they do like it when their favorite colors come in to play so that they are treated as individuals as well.

    Very pretty! My twin granddaughters will be 7 this year and they were "assigned" pink and purple. The girls aren't identical but boy I sure have a time telling them apart...anyway before they were 2 they switched which color they like and have kept their colors since then. 1 still loves pink and 1 still loves purple...just opposite of who got what when they were born .

    Grand twins started my quilting adventure!

    If it hadn't been for my twin grand-daughters, I may never have fallen in love with quilting. When I found out that our DIL was expecting identical twins I thought: wouldn't it be nice for them to have similar but not matching quilts, and the rest is history! Our DIL was nice enough to dress Lauren in lavender (or sometimes lime or lemon), and Rhiannon was always dressed in a shade of raspberry (covering the spectrum from pink to red). I made their quilts accordingly. It is such a blessing to go to their house unannounced and find their quilts on their beds. I can tell they sleep with them every night.
    Blessings!

    Very cute. I'm sure they will love them when they are old enough.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
