What could be better than a baby quilt?

photo 1How about twin baby quilts?!  That’s right, twin baby quilts, one boy and one girl.  These lovelies were made from two fat quarter bundles of Zoe and Zack by Bethany Berndt Schackelford for Quilting Treasures. Each time I look at these fabrics it reminds me of the kids song “ten little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head.”   The pattern I used is my favorite go to for baby quilts, Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Designs.  It is simple and quick, but gives a fun complex look.

Although I think my favorite parts are the backs and the quilting.  I wanted the quilts to match, but still be unique.  The backs are both a super soft flannel in tone on tone prints, but the girl has polkadots, and the boy has stripes.  And for the quilting the girl got straight lines, and the boy got large circles.
