Our very own Abbeeroad has welcomed twins into her family, and I had a wonderful time crafting for them.  Since I was making two of everything, I admit that I took a bit of a shortcut on the quilts.  They aren't traditionally pieced quilts, but rather whole cloth printed to look like it has been pieced.  The fabrics are literally called "Potter Cheater Quilt", and came from kritterstitches on Spoonflower.  They feature the Deathly Hallows symbol, tiny cauldrons, brooms, owls, Sorting hats, and lots more.  She has it in a few colorways, but seems to have since removed the coral & yellow print from her shop.)  The backings and binding came from a local quilt shop, where the ladies were quite excited to help me pick some matches.  I think I made their day!   Cheesy

This is the first, in shades of purple and turquoise.  I made onesies and hats to match, so each little lady got her own set.  You can check out the onesies here: HP Onesies


My neighbor has a small business doing embroidered baby clothes on her embroidery machine, and she took on the task of making me custom quilt labels to match each quilt.  Of course, it's just making me want an embroidery machine all the more...


And the second one in shades of coral, yellow, and turquoise.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

WE LOVE THEM!!!

I have to admit that I missed the awesome embroidered labels when I first opened them, but we've been using them so much that it was inevitable I'd discover them eventually. I think I gasped when I saw it - it was like discovering a gift within a gift.

Yes, very lucky babies and mama indeed. Cheesy

I'm so glad they are being used!  I hate when people put my quilts away because they're afraid of getting them dirty.  I make them sturdy so they will stand up to lots of washings and drying, because babies make messes, and that's okay.  My nieces who are 8 & 6, have never even seen the quilts I made them, because my brother put them in a cupboard, so the kids wouldn't puke on them.  And Jena will be thrilled you liked her labels.  She was nervous about them because she hadn't done anything like them before.  I sent her pics of the quilts, and left some of the scrap fabric from the backings in her mailbox, and told her to do whatever she thought would look nice.  I love how beautifully they came out and how well she matched the colors.  Cheesy
