Nephew #2 welcomed his third daughter in April. They already have plenty of baby quilts from the first two girls, so this time I made big girl quilts for the older sisters.

I wanted the quilts to be different, but since they are sharing a room with twin beds, the quilts needed to go together. So I chose different patterns using the same fabrics.

Ali’s quilt is a traditional Rail Fence pattern with 1/2″ white sashing.

For Avery’s quilt, I cut a bunch of 10″ squares. Then I cut them in half, making two 5″ x 10″ blocks. Then I cut one of those in half making two 5″ squares and so one, with each cut I kept one block and cut the other in half. The final cut made two 2.5″ squares. Then I mixed them up and randomly re-assembled the blocks into 10″ squares using 1/2″ sashing.

The patterns are distinctly different but by using the same fabrics and 1/2″ white sashing, they look pretty good together.
