Twin Bed Quilt Tops

Remember this fabric I picked out for the quilts on my kid's bunk beds. The line is Echo Lotta Jansdotter.

 It only took me 7 months but I finally put together the quilt tops for my kids room. I needed something that was not gender specific and I would like for a long time (after they grow out of them and want to pick their own room decor).

I found a great tutorial on these adorable square blocks at Cluck Cluck Sew. There are so many great quilt tutorials on this website. I really liked the squares blocks because they are simple and easy to match up, especially for someone with very little quilting experience. Once I actually got started it was so easy to put together. I wish I would have done it sooner, haha. Now I just have to cut the batting and bottom, quilt it together, and finish with the binding on both of the quilts. A lot of work to go, but I am super motivated to get it done by September. This is why I have a love/hate relationship with quilting. I love making something beautiful and picking the fabrics. I hate all the time it takes to finish each quilt. They really are made with love, hopefully it will last a long time.

At least my son likes it!

Beautiful! Some day they can give these quilts to their children. That's what I love about quilts - the history and love behind them!
