    Quilts for twin Great-nieces

    Just catching up, posting a few completed projects.

    These quilts were made using McCalls Paradigm Shift pattern and a Ty Pennington fabric line from Free Spirit Fabrics. I obviously forgot to take pics after the quilts were finished so these are just the blocks on the design wall. They each had 2 borders added after these pics were taken. I used this pattern for the girl's older sister a couple of years ago.

    I like how the fabrics read as almost lacy within the blocks -- perfect for girls!

    Love those. They are perfect for girls - so feminine without being toooooo "girly".
