twin baby goldfish quilts

If I have one favorite go to fabric for baby quilts, this is it! I’m so in love with these Heather Ross goldfish!

These two little quilts were made and gifted last weekend to summer friends who are having twin boys in a couple months. I had such a great time pairing these cute little goldfish with some other fun fabrics.

I love the goldfish print in a strip quilt, since I think it’s fun to see a whole row of goldfish. In the past I’ve made similar strip quilts, using turquoises and oranges, or blues and browns… and this time I added in one of my favorite neutral solids, Kona Stone, as well as a bunch of orange, blue and brown prints and solids.

Both are quilted with simple straight lines, sewn 1/4″ away from each seam, and then bound with those cute stripey bindings!

I hope they will be well loved!

For those who might ask — the Heather Ross goldfish fabric is now out of print, but if you’re looking for something similar, you might look for the Heather Ross Munki Munki version of goldfish in bags. You can buy some over here from Kerri!

    They truly are lucky twins! The Heather Ross goldfish fabric is unbelieveably hard to find. I was able to get my hands on a yard of it and now I’m too afraid to use it since I may never have it again. haha

    So that’s what the two stripe bindings were for! I was totally gaga for the bindings by themselves so you can imagine how giddy I am seeing these quilts completed. They are absolutely fantastic! Very nice job and I am sure those quilts are going to be loved for years to come. You have one very lucky friend! :-)

    I wish I could find that orange and white stripe fabric. Looked for it. Couldn’t find it. :(

    These are awesome! I was just about to start a blue and brown strip quilt inspired by your blue and brown one. This is such perfect timing, because I was thinking about how I wanted to quilt them and I want to do it like you did these. I wasn’t sure how the random lines would look on the back, but they look fantastic! Do you mind telling me what size you made them? That is the last decision I have to make, and then I am going to start cutting. Thank you for all the inspiration you provide!

    Love them! They seem perfect for twin boys. I bet these quilts will be cherished their whole lives. I love how you make these munki munki prints work in your projects, so I have started to collect a few pieces from Kerri’s shop.

    Soooo cute! I am sure they loved them. Your gift must have been the BEST one.

    They are beautiful! My sister had twin boys in Dec and my quilts aren’t nearly as cute (or finished.)

    Why must all the best fabrics be discontinued? Just found out today that Anna Maria Good Folks is also discontinued. Sigh…

    Ashley, you are killing me with these goldfish quilts- these are my favorites of all the ones you have made so far! So much so that I broke down and bid a rediculous amount of money for a half yard of the goldfish fabric on ebay….we’ll see if anyone crazier outbids me! I especially love the backs- what is the Kona blue you have here paired with the stone? It looks fantastic.

    I LOVE these quilts they are so adorable. I really like the brown, blue, orange combo it looks really modern. I am disappointed tho seeing those bindings looking so good because I cant find that zig zag fabric anywhere :(

    I love the goldfish in a row, too! And the singleton fish on the back! So cute!
