Baby Quilt


Someone Who Matters asked me if I would make a baby quilt for her to give as a gift.

Well, of course.

She thought aqua would be a good main color and was thinking something kind of contemporary.

So during a recent trip to Burkholder's Executive Committee meeting, I spent some time in the Kona section and really had a good time picking out FQs to go with the robin's egg main fabric. A bold color scheme for me, and I like it. A lot.

The blocks are from the Tula Pink book, of course, and someone said they reminded her of nautical flags. I can see that. The photo below shows a close-up of Mary Ellen's remarkable quilting. Done in variegated thread. Exactly right.

"Exactly right" is correct; simply wonderful!

What a delightful, colorful quilt and Mary Ellen's quilting is just right!

Is the pattern in the Tula Pink book or did you decide what blocks to use and how to arrange them?

You're certainly getting a lot of sewing done!!

Hugs!

Looks like it could hang in a modern art gallery! Nice--and yes, I can see the nautical flag theme, too. : )

Oh that's lovely (as always!). And I love how you refer to the recipient as "Someone Who Matters!"

Wow!

Your quilter is a keeper! It looks fantastic on this modern baby quilt. These young parents love the modern quilts. I made a chevron one recently in "gray and teal with pops of orange." I was skeptical, but it looked great and the new parents loved it!
