When I bought the fabric for "Grampa's Little Genius" which I told you about in this post, I bought more than I needed hoping to make another baby quilt from it. I loved a quilt my friend Rita had made after "seeing it somewhere," so I sketched it out and determined that I had enough for it. I cut it out and set it aside waiting for just the right baby.
Recently Baby Hudson made his entrance into this world so I started looking for quilt ideas trying to figure out what to make for him. His Aunt Leah sent me a photo of his nursery, and guess what? The wall color works perfectly with this fabric. I got busy!
This was a really fun quilt to work on because of having everything prepped ahead of time. Maybe I should do that more often. It went together fast.
Straight-line quilting was the right choice for this quilt. I'm getting a little better at it, I think. Even if it's not perfect I mean for these quilts to be used, spit up on (and worse!) and dragged around. After a few washings, who can tell, right?
So, another baby quilt went into the mail, and a sweet little baby can start snuggling right away.
Hudson's mama sent me these photos of him so I could include them here. I think he likes it! If nothing else, he's feeling very mellow about it.
