baby boy quilts. I did have a photo of her baby's nursery so far and it was pretty bold and modern so I wanted to make sure this would fit in.
Gwen Marsten's Liberated Quiltmaking II. I bought this book after seeing versions of this quilt online (here and here).
Thank goodness for Carolyn Friedlander's (more or less) gender neutral Botanics collection because I relied heavily on it for fabrics in the quilt. It seems like almost every other teal or orange fabric I had was floral.
This super terrible, blurry, dark photo is the someone the only one that I got that shows the backing fabric, which is Ann Kelle Remix. Despite the bad photo, it is a great print and is one of my new favorites. The binding is a gray Architextures crosshatch.
I took these photos in front of our church building after we left an activity for the kids this evening. We walked out and the sun was just on the horizon and there were hot air balloons landing all around the building. It was magical.
Overall making this quilt for my sister to give to someone I never met was very enjoyable. I will be sending it off to Denver soon so that it can be gifted at a baby shower.
Finished size: 39" x 52"
