These are the baby quilts I made at the second guild retreat I ever attended back in November 1996. I was expecting my twins at the time, and actually just made one of these bright quilts. The other quilt was a very demure blue sampler quilt and the consensus of my fellow retreaters was that I'd have one serene and one hyper baby, so I decided I'd go for two overstimulated babies! I made the second bright one after I got home and ended up giving the blue sampler to my nephew who was born a few months after my boys.
I used Sharyn Craig's Twist and Turn method of setting the blocks and some wonderful hand-dyed fabrics sold by one of my fellow guild members. I remember spending a lot of time at the bathroom sink trying to get the excess dye out before setting the fabrics into my quilt!
