Blue Streak

Sometimes the names for quilts just don't stick. This had been Little Boy Blue since the baby it is for is known to be a boy.

But once it was all together and quilted (by hand, using two strands of a variegated floss), I knew it was Blue Streak, and not Little Boy Blue.

Baby is due within a couple of weeks, and I'm going to send it off in the mail to mama this week so that she has time to wash it before he arrives.

I learned this week that another friend's daughter is expecting a boy. I already know what his quilt will be! I discovered inspiration for it in Sarah Fielke's book which is just such a nice book. Take a look . . . .

What a charming quilt and the name is perfect. I love making baby quilts but at least right now there are no babies in our circle of friends. I usually have 1 or 2 on hand but none has gone out for a while. :-(

I love the look, and the name. I'm sure that little boy will cuddle it for a long time.

This is such a delightful quilt! You're so right that quilt names change because sometimes the quilt just tells you its name. Mama will be surprised and so very pleased when she opens the package containing this treasure.

I'll look for the book at the library as it seems to be excellent eye candy if not more.

Hugs!

Such a nice and happy quilt for a very lucky baby boy!! What size do you make your baby quilts? I usually over size mine - like around 45" x 45", but I'm taking an informal poll to see what others do. Love your work!
