I currently am working on the most dope baby quilt I have ever made. Not kidding – truly the greatest. But because that baby quilt is secret sewing, here are some pictures of some other baby quilts I have wrapped up quickly. They are pretty ok…
This was made based on a pattern in wanderlust quilts. I modified and simplified it a bit so there weren’t any Y-seams. I used V and Co. Ombre. Something about the ombres, especially the yellow and turquoise make it look light the quilt is lit from within. I used Kona Medium Gray… and my favorite baby boy quilt back fabric of the season, this Zoology print..
I loved giving this quilt. The mom recipient is one of my favorite people. And she really loved the quilt.
Next up is a quilt made for a friend who was going to be surprised by the gender. When I ask what colors a nursery is going to be decorated, the trend is going to get very specific answers. Which I would be the EXACT SAME if I was decorating a nursery. But as a quiltmaker, I yearn for free color and artistic control. So when this mom said, “um, I don’t know, green?” I was thrilled. And wowzer did I get crazy with the green. I had a lot of fun with this quilt.
How sweet is that? Love all of those greens – and I do think it will be equally cheerful for a boy and girl. This has become my favorite baby quilt pattern. It is on-point 5-in squares and tied. The tieing and no binding make the quilts lay flatter and look cleaner.
I backed this quilt with a fun all-over numbers green print.
I have made 4 boy quilts in a row, so I was ready for a girl quilt. So I used the same pattern and went crazy with the girly flowery prints.
Oh my gosh, that quilt is my jam !! I still have to tie it, but then it will go to Project Linus. I think it will make a small girl and a family happy. With all those beautiful blooms, how couldn’t it?
