Ooooh Baby Baby

A twin finish this week folks! I am glad to have the last of the baby quilts done!  Ready for the story? You knew there'd be one, right?
 So I have this friend who lives in Texas. We met when we moved to Texas more than 20 years ago. She is a great friend and she is as Texas as a person can be.
 Her daughter, who is friends with my daughters, is expecting twins. Now, this is exciting in and of itself.
 But what makes it even more exciting as that twins do not run in their family. Not at all. Not on either side.
 So, what do you make for a set of identical twins from Texas? Yup. Twin Texas Flag quilts. Now, they are not identical.
 I made them from lots of scraps in my stash and I did buy a couple of half yard pieces to make it all work.
 The back of the quilts is some adorable baby flannel fat quarters I bought a couple of years ago from Connecting Threads.
 One quilt is bound in blue, one bound in red. Just another little subtle difference.
And I can't wait to send all this cuddly stuff off to Texas. It should be a nice surprise. Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.

Oh those are great! Wonderful interpretation of the state flag. I'm sure the mama and twins will get LOTS of use out of them!

I LOVE THESE! I also lived in Texas for a time, left some very dear (very TEXAS) friends there, and now I need to make these for them! :)
