A friend of mine is expecting her first baby and she was not exactly thrilled when she found out that it was going to be a boy. Since I find baby boy quilts a little difficult and this friend has a very strong personal style, I was a little worried about making her a quilt. I wanted to make something that would help her be a little more excited about having a boy since baby boys are just the sweetest.
I was trying for muted blues, grays, and blacks and I wanted to distribute them to look random. But it turns out that creating a "random" look is much more difficult than it should be. Seriously, this layout took forever and I'd go back and change a few things if I could. Who knew that random took so much planning?
The backing is an amazing Bark and Branch print. I was a little sad to use this one up, but it was the right fabric for this quilt. I may need to buy more.
I gifted this at a baby shower last week (after finishing at the last minute!) and she seemed to really like it. Gifting baby quilts is the best.
Finished size: 40" x 50"
