    Need advice...

    ... from my Quilty Friends!

    As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, one of my DIL's is pregnant with twins. She and I were looking through my stash yesterday, and talking about what sort of quilts I'm going to make for them. She was thinking about a "Two Peas in a Pod" theme, and we found some cute nursery decor ideas online, but were not able to come up with any fabrics with that theme.

    I told her, "Never fear; my quilty friends on the M*QC Forum will help!"

    SOOooooo... if any of you have any ideas, please let me know!

    Thanks, dear ones.

    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

      I like this one even tho there's no peas or pod in it. You could modify the size of the circles and chevron to make baby quilts instead of twin size.
      (Pinterest...) http://pin.it/RR4DrZ3 I'm sure someone will be along soon with more suggestions! And congratulations!!

        You may have to do some applique: 2peas.jpgpeas in a pod.jpgpea_pod_quilt_pattern_by_colormist.jpg

        Here's a great backing fabric from Fabric.com: Pea Fabric.jpg
        Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
        it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

          Congratulations to you all!! I think you could appliqué "Pea A" and Pea B" on matching quilts and they'd be darling!! You will have SUCH a wonderful time quilting for these sweet peas!
