Last week I was able to get a baby quilt done for my new-ish nephew. And what a cutie he is! My sister is more on the modern style, so I geared the style of the quilt more towards that.
I literally had 10 minutes (or less!) to hurry and take photos, so forgive the lack of creativity and the crease down the middle from being folded up before hand. (Normally I would've tried to get that out).
My sister had mentioned to me that she liked the MM Bikes fabric and the japanese Elephants. She said she liked the blue and gray combo with a little red, for winter since her baby is a winter baby. She likes things more simple and not a big polka dot fan, so I resisted using noticeable polka dots. I did use some tiny ones. (sshhhh!)
Making things for other people is great because it really does give you the go-ahead to do something you might not otherwise do as far as fabrics and the style the project is. It's always a pleasure knowing you really tailored the project to thier liking. Although I really fretted about the placement and different widths of the fabric for this quilt....I love how it turned out and I think it matches my sister's style.
I think next time we go out to see them I need to get a picture of the baby and quilt together, don't you think?!
Better than just a picture of a rolled up quilt!
P.S. all of the fabrics came from Kerri's shop!! THANK YOU Kerri!! :)
