When Qingru and Luhan arrived at our house, they were SO enamored with all of my quilts. As this excitement continued over the next few days I decided that I wanted to give both girls a lap quilt when they moved into their apartments…..in 10 days!!!!
I knew that I couldn’t make two quilts from scratch, but as I sat looking at the big quilt that I had in my UFO bin…….
I played around with border colors a little bit and quickly decided to use similar colors for both quilts.
I madly quilted both of them, using a lot of straight lines and adding a bit of free-motion once I was sure that I could get them finished on time.
They ended up looking great……
The girls were moving in on Saturday morning so on Friday evening I finally got the quilts washed and dried. Just before the girls were going up to start packing, Michael and I presented their gifts.
THEY WERE THRILLED!!!!!
It was such fun to see them so excited and I hope that these will keep both girls warm on many nights!!!
