Shoo Fly Baby Quilts

I love traditional quilt blocks!  Here are the result of playing with Shoo Fly Blocks.   They are so easy and fun to make.

These baby quilts are for a set of twins whose gender is unknown to the parents as of yet.  I used a fat quarter bundle of So Sophie by Riley Blake and made 4 blocks with each print, 2 being the inverse of the other 2.  This way, one quilt has darks for the "background" and the other uses the lights.  A bit like twins maybe?  Different but alike?   The backing on each quilt is a soft white sheet.

Anyways, I loved being able to make a stripey binding, my favourite kind, on these little quilts, and the free motion stippling makes them so crinkly soft.  I would have loved to keep them and cuddle them, but they were happily passed on to the valiant and strong mama who is carrying these two little precious people so well.
