Here's the back story:
My bf's cousin and his gf are expecting fraternal twin boys very soon. For Christmas I've been making butt-loads of cute little clothes, mostly out of flannelette. I had all these scrappy bits left over; you know, nothing big enough to make anything.....except a quilt for each of them!
Now, I'm not a quilter, and I knew it was going to be tricky.....especial
ly because they're made up of 2" squares (1.5" once sewn together). Some of the coloumns of squares don't line up perfectly and I had an issue with the backs (the backing slid slightly slanted, so that the bottom border of one was lined up on one side, and completely off on the other...by 1.5"
ANYWAY, I'm pleased none-the-less with them. The fronts are made of cotton flannelette and the back is made of diaper cotton flannel, which is the softest thing ever. It's filled with a double layer of 5oz poly batting, and I was very good and used all cotton thread. I did it all with my machine, no hand sewing for me hehe but they still took about 8-10 hours each (counting all the marking and cutting and pinning)...Onto the pictures!

Here they are side by side (the picture is a little blurry).
Here's showing the back. Some of my stitching is a little wonky but I'm going with "character". Each "ring" on the 2 quilts have a different pattern to them, so they're each a little different.
And a close-up of the back
Thanks for looking!
