Twin baby quilts for twin baby boys!

These baby quilts were 3/4 of the way successful - only one was done in time for the baby shower, but both are now done and the babies aren't here yet!

I originally just named them "Foxy" and "Foxier" but have decided to have a little bit more fun with their names and am now calling them "What Does the Fox Say?" and "Whooo Do You Love?" after the cute little fox and owl in the main print :)  Both are disappearing 9-patch quilts made with the same fabrics for the tops (you can read more about that here) but have different backings and bindings.  I didn't want them to be exactly the same, as these babies are fraternal twins, not identical!  Both are quilted with double lines along the main block seam allowances.

One of the quilts is backed with a DS Quilts print from JoAnn's - a brown print with cream and orange flowers - and bound with Moda Marbles in teal (I think).

Its brother is backed in two pieces from my stash (both no-names from JoAnn's) - a green leaf print and a bigger orange and brown floral.  That one is bound in orange and white/cream oval dots from the DS Quilts for JoAnn's line (there are several different colors available - all pretty fun!).

Here's hoping Seth and Sydney get many years of use out of them!
