Back in July (I think) I proposed to the OKCMQG ladies that we make a baby quilt for one of our lovely members who is pregnant. Robin is super sweet, a great quilter, and just an all ’round fun gal so I was super excited about the idea of us making something for her and her very first baby.
Members wonderfully (and enthusiastically) stepped forward to participate and did a fabulous job of keeping the project on the down low around Robin. I told everyone to use the colors pink, aqua, and orange. Robin loves bold color and I’ve been dying to work in this color combination. Then I told everyone to make a block that represented them as modern quilters.
Over a couple of months blocks trickled in and I spent the last week finishing it all up for the group to give to her at the meeting we had on Saturday.
My sweet friend, Angelina began the Improv-Chevron block in the bottom left corner from this Six White Horses tutorial, but suffered a neck injury and was unable to finish it. So I offered to complete it for her. I really love our co-block. She’s so great at the improv piecing and you can totally tell the 3 rows she did vs. the one anal retentive block strip I did. lol I love that she trusted me to finish it though. That’s love man.
I quilted it with a simple diamond pattern. I didn’t want to overpower the beautiful blocks. Then I stitched on some Madrona Road for the binding.
