Every Baby Needs a Quilt
Every baby needs a quilt. or. that's my excuse to sit down and make a quilt rather than washing my kitchen floor!
There's a new baby cousin in our family. In the back of my mind I was toying with the idea of making a quilt, but it wasn't till after he was born that I decided I WAS making one. I knew what the mom's nursery colors were, and I knew which style to make.
A while back, she commented on this one that I made for my kiddos, so I knew that's what I'd be making, only editing the colors a bit, rather than a total mish-mash.
When I make something as a gift, I'm always agonizing whether they'll like it. "should I have rather gone with this? what if this is just the one fabric they hate?" on and on. But this time I had a blast. Because I knew her exact colors and what pattern to make. I tried to add in fun motifs, although it was a little harder cause I was just going with teal, orange, green, black and white.
I think this little guy blowing bubbles is my favorite.
I didn't get a pic of the back, but it's a green and yellow flannel with a bit of an argyle print.
Stay tuned, I think there's a bit of a giveaway in the near future... what should I give you; fabric, or a finished project?
