Oink A Doodle Moo twin baby quilts

Well, as it turns out, I had twins!

I recently posted about some leftover Oink A Doodle Moo (by Jenn Ski for Moda) that I was playing around with and created a baby quilt top.  I still had some large scraps on the design wall.

So more playtime ensued!  For this second baby boy quilt, I used the partial seam (tutorial here) method to make the blocks.

I was so pleased that a pattern using this method is now in the works!




These bright and happy quilts each have mitered corners (tutorial here) 
and both turned out to be around 41" square.

Improv Pieced


I used a flannel for the matching backings.
I quilted in the ditch for each and then quilted geometric boxes
in the negative space for the improv pieced quilt.

Oh, fun! I love that top quilt in particular. Lovely! I always enjoy a pattern where you can change the size of the block to fit the needs of your fabric. :)

Thanks for linking up, and hooray for two lovely baby quilts!

Soo cute! Perfect pattern for showing off the prints. Plus, I bet that flannel is super warm :)

Lorna, what delightfully sweet quilts you have made for these twins. I love how you used the fabrics in two different ways. Very well done of you, Whoop, Whoop!

Lots of fun to have two similar but different quilts for twins! I really enjoyed working with Oink A Doodle Moo earlier in the year - it's a lot of fun! I love the borders on each of the quilts, but will be popping off to look at your partial seam tutorial. The blocks in the first quilts are really impactful!

I love the partial seam framed one - that really sets off the prints beautifully!

P.S. Thanks so much again for the profile tip! I think I fixed it : )

Excellent finishes, Lorna! I love how each looks different but equally delightful. I really like the open frames on the top version. Very cute!

This quilt is so fun! Love the pattern! I have yet to try my hand at partial seams-they kind of scare me! This gives me the inspiration to try it! Thanks for sharing!

Both are very cute, but I especially like the top pattern and the way the panels/fussy cuts are framed!
