I have a LOT of cousins - somewhere in the 40-50 range - plus my husband has at least as many as I do, so there is no way I could make a quilt for each of my cousin's babies. I am closest with my cousins on my mom's side, so I decided that I would make a quilt for each of their first babies. So far only a couple of them have kids, but there are probably a lot of baby quilts in my future.
They wanted a quilt that used navy and lime. I hope they don't mind that I took a little liberty with that because I have virtually no lime fabrics in my stash. I ended up adding some other greens, blues and yellows as well as a whole bunch of grays.
This quilt could also be called "Ode to Carolyn Friedlander." Sometimes a designer makes fabrics that are just in the right colors for a project, and that was the case for this quilt.
This quilt ended up 38" x 51" and was made using a whole bunch of 3" finished HSTs.
The backing is a Mama Said Sew print that I've had in my stash for a while. This quilt was gifted this past weekend and I am excited that I can finally share it with you.
p.s. Thank you for all of your kind comments on our house. We had an open house this weekend and 90 people showed up. Crazy! I am hoping we can accept an offer soon that I can stop spending my entire day cleaning!
