And now, a bunch of pictures.
|These were the colors of baby's nursery: coral, gray, and light blue. The pattern was inspired by this quilt, which I found while pinteresting.|
|There was some discussion as to whether black was appropriate for a baby quilt. I decided to go for it, and I loved the way it helped define the space.|
|I was a bit stumped on what to do for binding, since what I had bought didn't seem to fit the mellowness of the quilt. I ended taking what was left of the main fabrics and making binding out of those, and I really really love how it turned out.|
|The fabric I used on the back was my first foray into online fabric shopping, since I knew I wanted gray and the store I was at had a dismal collection. I was not disappointed with my online fabric shopping. I will be doing more of that.|
|The mama for this quilt didn't have any color requests, but I was getting a bright color vibe. The pattern was inspired by this quilt, which I also found while pinteresting. It's basically a single giant log cabin block.|
|This quilt actually had a twin, which was for another friend who wasn't finding out the gender of her baby, so it was lovely and gender-neutral. But ... I forgot to photograph it before giving it away.|
|Wish I would have managed a closer shot of the handbinding. This is a close as I got, but you can sort of see what I mean? It was kind of cool to slow way down and experience the process in slow motion. Quilting is a beautiful process.|
