Fraternal twins

Kaye sent me two quilts made using the same pattern but very different fabrics.

I wanted to quilt them completely differently.I felt that the Yellow/Grey twin was asking for a slightly more traditional look – although some corrugated iron stitching snuck in there.

Now for the bright cat twin
This quilt called out for some funky variegated thread and a more modern approach.

Same pattern two very different looks.
My friend Clare of Lotsmooredesigns has a nice giveaway. Pop over and have a look.
Bye for now

  2. Interesting to see how you tackled each one - they both look great with their own personalised touch.Have you seen the book 'Quilting the Quilt' by Lee Cleland? She takes a quilt (makes it 5 times!) and quilts each version differently - fascinating!
