Twins get new blankets

Earlier this year I was contacted by a woman from So. California.  She stated that she wanted to have quilts made for her twins- a boy and a girl, they were turning 3yrs old. She and I decided on a color scheme and theme for each of the quilts and I went about scouring the internet, my stash and the local quilt shop for fabrics. She also wanted their names on the quilts.

The little guy's quilt was to have a travel theme- cars, planes, trains. The colors were to be Blues and Greens. Easy enough to find fabric you say?  Ha!!  Not so quick...  I did find some cool ones on the internet- and my last find was in Ketchican Alaska this summer, while on a cruise.

Little girl quilt to be Hearts themed and pink/purple.... The fabric I found that would have been perfect only came in fleece.... so I kept looking, right before my eyes the most wonderful fabric appeared at the quilt store where I work part-time. Voila.... The rest of the quilt story is that the week prior to their birthdays, I finished and mailed them off.  I received glowing reports back from their Mom and said that the quilts were well received.  I did receive pictures of the children from their Mom, but will not post them as I do not have her permission.... but these are the quilts while still in the working stage.
