    Oh my goodness! That is some precious fabric. Where ever did you find it? I would love some of it! These will be wonderful for your twin grandones. I made my grandsons Bears Paw quilts because Bears is what their room is decorated in. My sweet DIL has the quilts as wall hangings now because they were on the small side and the boys are now 28 months. And tons of fun! You are going to have so much fun with them!! Congrats!

    It's going to be a cute quilt!! 2 of them I mean! My twin grandsons are 5 and will be 6 this Nov. Where does the time go?? They are our youngest of 9

    Looking forward to pictures!! Do they know yet what they are? Boys or girls? Fraternal or identical? Ours are fraternal. Twins run in our family every third generation. I always wished I was a twin! I have twin cousins.

    Cute! Cute!

    My goodness, twins! When my Mom found out she was having twins, (about two weeks before we were (prematurely) born if I remember the story correctly), she went out and read all she could about them. I'll always be grateful to the author(s) who advised to not give rhyming or matching names. :-)

    I love those panels!

    Another twin story -
    When my mother was in the delivery room with my twin sisters 41 years ago, the doctor said "well, there's one..." What? My mother found out she was having twins after the first one was born. She had the name Maria Teresa picked out and ended up naming them Maria Anne and Teresa Anne.

    Imaging my surprise when I got home from school that day to not one sister but two, in the crib in MY ROOM! Boy, was that annoying! They still are! lolol

    Oh, and just why do the inspectors feel the need to sit in the middle of the project? Can't they do their job from the edge? I know mine can't! They have to "feeeel" the fabric.
