Twinsies: Stars on a Cloudy Day

Here is the second of a pair of quilts I recently gave to a friend who had twin boys:

Like the other quilt I made, this design is from the It's Sew Emma Patterns book, Fat Quarter Style, and is called "Sparklettes." Since I put the stars on a grey background, I named my rendition, "Stars on a Cloudy Day."

Again, I used fabrics from my stash and used Seahawks-inspired colors. This is the Crib size (finishing at about 40.5" x 47.75").

The quilting was all done using Aurifil Mako 50/2 in Dove (#2600-- a soft grey). I'm not thrilled with how the stars turned out-- but they are at least all relatively consistent, so I like to think that all the funkiness looks intentional.

Gotta love a scrappy back! I've had that sky blue star print in my stash for at least 15 years now. It is so good to finally put it to use!

And the label.

I really wanted each quilt to be unique but still similar and I am really happy with how they pair together.

My friend was so happy to receive them. I think these quilts will get much love from her boys.
