baby quilt for Silas

baby quilt for Silas

My friend, Linda, had her second son just before Christmas and I made this quilt for her new baby.





I searched through my flickr favorites tagged with "baby quilt" and based my quilt on  this quilt that I found for inspiration.

Here's the finished quilt. In keeping with my 2010 resolution, everything used in this quilt was in my stash...a little bit of flea market fancy, a little bit of Lush, a few solids and a little bit of fabric bought in Japan. I think this is probably my most favorite color combination and I've got the sudden urge to decorate a room in our house in these colors. But since I'm still recovering from the basement remodel, I think I'll stick to playing with fabric instead!

The quilt is 28" x 38" and has cotton batting and some (new to me) loop-d-loop quilting.

  7. lovely quilt. I love the blue/brown combination (is one of my favs. I'm trying to not buy more fabric and using what I already have too.

  8. Everything Audrie said. I'm really getting into some of the more natural/earthy looking fabrics and I like what you've done with this color palette.

  9. What great color choices -- some people just have an eye for these things. Then there are other people who copy those choices (I'm in the latter group). Thanks for sharing.
