How Charming - Twin Boy Versions - Finished!

Hey, it's a repeat of last week! Only a little different.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this pattern. It's EASY, it makes efficient use of fabric, and it looks good. I could easily bust into my Christmas and Halloween stashes to make a couple more versions.

I really love that these are the exact same quilts {Meadow Friends/Deb Strain and Grow With Me/Deb Strain & Daughters, plus a couple random charms because I can't count} but since I used a bright aqua for one background and muted green for the other, they look like different quilts.

Since these are long-armed-quilts #3 & 4, I wanted to expand my expertise. {Ha!} So my mentor picked out a slightly harder panto, while telling me I'm really ready to let go of the tracing. {Ha!}

My swirls at the bottom were much more controlled and nicer looking. And I do feel like I developed some muscle memory...even though I did get lost along the panto a couple times.

And back! Don't you just want to TOUCH that?

These are going to my husband's cousin, who just had {duh} twin boys.

They measure 46" square.



  1. Beautiful! Love the matching...but different.

  2. Your color choices really make these quilts. Just beautiful! I came over from Crazy Mom Quilts.

  3. Congrats on the finishes! It's amazing how different colors give each quilt such a different feel.

  4. Those are gorgeous. Your long arm work is lovely.

  5. Oh what sweet quilts! So nice to have quick patterns to make. Love the idea of using minkee for the baby quilts, but must confess never tried using it as of date.

  6. What a great pattern! Your quilting is awesome. Just let go of the pantos! I'm grateful to my sister-in-law for not letting me start with them.

    And I love love love a minky backed quilt! Two lucky little babies, for sure!

  7. Wow! Those turned out so fantastic. Nice coloring on both, and great quilting. You're jamming!!

  8. This is exactly why I love quilts; the same quilt pattern can look so different depending on the fabrics. Beautiful job, Katie, with the quilting too! Way to go!

  9. What an adorable set of quilts! They match, but each has its own unique flair. love them!
