Whipping up a baby quilt

A friend of mine just had twins... baby #3 and #4. 
Of course they needed their very own quilts.
Baby boy is getting the Berenstain Bears quilt that I finished last month and Baby girl is getting this quilt that I have been working on this week. I've had everything since the spring quilt retreat but of course I procrastinated it until the babies arrived and the quilts weren't ready!
The pattern I used is called "Through the Looking Glass" from Sew Emma. The main fabric is an adorable owl print from Robert Kaufman.



Here is the quilt top. It was quick and easy to put together and before I knew it,
I was already pin basting the backing, batting and quilt top sandwich and it was ready to quilt.
Baby quilts are so fun to make!

Lucky babies! I agree that every baby needs a quilt. Very cute.

So cute. I love the owl fabric in it. Please show us the boy quilt too.

Baby quilts really are so much fun to make and they are smaller so they don't take as long to finish either!

I love that pattern....I've seen a lot of baby quilts made from that already with many different fabrics and they are all cute! Wow, baby #3 and #4...that Mom will have her hands full...and YES those babies each need their own quilts!!

That is a sweet little quilt. I like your fabrics even better than the ones on the pattern.
How do you plan to quilt it?

That pattern really makes a great graphic quilt!! Nice work (on both of them and just remember, the babies won't care that you didn't finish their quilts til after they were born.)

Very cute. Grey seams to be popular in baby quilts right now?! I got a request from my niece for a pink, blue and grey colored quilt for her new baby. I guess when paired with pink and white or other pastels it's really not so solemn. Your quilt looks soft and wonderful!

That owl fabric is so cute! It's a very fun quilt for a little girl.

Great girl's quilt. How fun to have matching quilts that are different for the different twins.

Nice one. I love how quickly baby quilts go together and quilt up!
