Twin Quilts for Twin Beds

When your teen daughter can no longer sit up in her bunk bed without conking herself on the ceiling, it's time for a bedroom makeover. New furniture was a necessity, new paint just made sense, and that left me with no choice but to make new quilts.

I decided to make the girls the same quilt pattern from the same line of fabric, but did my best to make them look different enough that it felt like each quilt was uniquely tailored to each girl's taste. I selected Tucker Prairie Fabric by 1Canoe2, and this free quilt pattern from Moda's Bake Shop.

The bulk of the quilt is made from jelly rolls - what a time saver! I haven't worked with jelly rolls very much, but they worked great for these quilts. The remaining pieces are made with HST's, so these quilts sewed up very quickly.

For each girl, I selected different focal fabrics from the line, and then altered the placement of my jelly roll strips to look best with those fabrics. I think it worked out well - they look like completely different quilts while still complementing each other!
