Yes, twin quilts for twin girls!! Sandy, owner operator of Northland's Sewing Centre made two nearly identical quilts for her 19 year old twin nieces.
Sandy asked for both quilts to be quilted the same and I could choose how to quilt them. I did have the brief of light custom and maybe some feathers. Both quilts are the same all except the purple and green on the borders, they are opposite, the corner squares are green on the other quilt and purple wide borders pieces.
A feather wreath in each square was feathery, but with a modern touch with rings in the centre.
The borders needed texture, and more feathers would have been over the top, so lines and meandering it was. This gives a nice play in the light.
I followed through with the feather theme in the purple and green areas, and straight lines in the cream.
Sandy I am sure your nieces with love these quilts. Such a special gift to give are quilts, made with love and given with love.
I have just finished a very different quilt made from satin prize ribbons, you will have to wait to see the whole quilt, as it is heading back to it's owner, but I will give you a sneak peek!
Simon has been 'helping' with office work, you know "Mum will find it helpful if I carefully 'put' this pen on the floor for her".
