Quilts for the Twinkies
For a language that has as many words as English does, it really fails me on occasion. Like, why isn't there a word for what my daughter's brother-in-law's wife is to me? Other than a constant source of entertainment and delight. I'm thrilled to claim Carrie as family and DBILW just doesn't cut it.
Be that as it may, Carrie's about to become a mother again. Her other child, Stephen, has just finished his junior year in high school, so it's been a while. She and Matt are expecting their son and daughter in just a few short weeks. They're known as The Twinkies.
So a pair of Fancy Foxes were definitely in order. I don't think you can see it, even by enlarging, but my machinist quilted little paw prints all over these twin quilts. Ben's quilt is all different foxy toned batiks and Tess's is made from the sweetest of the Kaffe prints I could find.
Okay, Twinkies, any time now. I can't wait to meet you!
