Last week I made a baby quilt for a friend in Houston, snapped some pictures, flew out to Houston on Saturday, and came back to Oklahoma Sunday night. PHEW! It was a whirlwind of a week.
I kept it simple and played around in Illustrator with HSTs. I came up with this fun, random, quilt with bright, powerful color, that is kept sweet and soft by the low volume squares. I'm in love with the results and can't wait to use this pattern again.
The quilt finishes at 36" x 40". Just perfect for cuddling, using in a carseat or stroller, playing on, and dragging around as a toddler. I also tried some "new to me" loopy quilting and despite some imperfections, I'm pleased with the results.
I'll be back later this week with some HST tips and tricks, fabric requirements, and cutting details for the "Baby Shower Quilt". Hope to "see" again you then!
