One of the "Ladies" is having Twins

Our little group was nicknamed "The Ladies" by one of the quilters daughters, Aleena. Aleena is just a few weeks away from having twins...a boy and a girl. So her momma and I got together and designed a quilt for each baby. We planned it together on a Sunday and then Ruth did the shopping and the drawing of the monkey face, etc. I got to help with some of the sewing on Ruth's day off Wednesday. I feel like I was a small part of keeping them warm and toasty. As you can tell, she will have 4 babies under four!! Doesn't it make you tired just thinking of it?

This is the boys quilt. Can you see his bow tie? How cute and then this will be bound in the brown dots when it gets quilted.

The girls quilt has a bow in the top of her head. Oh, so cute. It was a fun project and it's always fun to sew with your friends. What would we do without each other?

Ruth has a quilting machine and did the quilting herself. It is so darling. I am working for her in a couple of weeks so she can leave her business and take care of her new grandbabies when they get here.


  1. Those quilts are so cute. hope the birth goes well for her.

  2. How fun that you were able to get together with Ruthie and quilt for those grandbabies. I love the monkey faces! So cute to have a boy one and a girl one. I follow Aleena's blog and I know her MIL has been there helping and has been a huge support. Aleena is lucky to have so many people who love her and are praying for her and the babies.

  3. Those are the cutest quilts! You are a great friend to help out! Wishing Aleena all the best!

  4. what a beautiful mom with her daughters and their baby dolls! ;) I am a mom of b/g twins and mine are 2.5 years old... tell her to get as much SLEEP as possible now before they arrive b/c afterwords she will be soooo sleep deprived! The first 3 months I felt like I was drunk all the time b/c I never slept longer than a 2-3 hour span!

    The first 6 months are the hardest. Good luck to her!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
