I needed a baby quilt STAT! for a friend at work. I had three days between when I decided I wanted to make the quilt and when the baby was due. Oy.
I went with the old standby of squares and straight line quilting.
I restrained my color palette to grey, aqua, beige, yellow, and b&w. When I type out all of those colors it doesn’t seem that restrained, but for me it is.
I knew the quilt wouldn’t offer a lot in terms of design pop. so I dug deep in my stash for some of my cutest prints.
These adorable boots are totally stolen from how Rita used them in one of her baby quilts. She is a genius.
I continued the cute print trend by using these cameras on the back.
I cut the first night, took the second night off, and pieced, quilted and bound on a veeeery long third night.
Not my best work, but I think my friend likes it. I took it out of the dryer and delivered to work her last day in the office.
I am over deadlines for a bit.
