Central Park Twins

I'm helping my friend with some quilts for her son and daughter using Central Park fabric and the Lemon Squares pattern from Faith (Fresh Lemons).

"His and Hers" Central Park Quilt Tops
The Central Park fabric is ideal for boy/girl quilts. I used the pink/purple/blue/green prints for the girl quilt and the blue/green/yellow prints for the boy quilt. I added in a few Kona solids too. (I'm always surprised by the size of twin-size quilts. Just me?)

"His" Central Park Quilt Top
Faith's pattern allowed me to fussy cut some of the elements and highlight some of the large-scale prints.

Some Bahama Blue Kona makes an appearance in both quilts.

"His" Central Park Border
A bit of Kona Stone too. I added a blue cobblestone border to the boy version.

Central Park Quilt Top for "Her"
I used some of the green prints in the girl top to mix things up a bit.

Kindly excuse the stray threads...


The girl version got a purple cobblestone border. These cobblestones are my favorite prints in the collection.

We just need to decide on some bindings and backings and these will be off to their new home!

Love them both. I agree, that cobblestone fabric is great. I need to get some more of it before it disappears.

These turned out great! I really love both color combinations, and the cobblestone really is perfect for the border.

There is something stunning about 2 coordinating quilts, hanging side by side!
