Two of my friends are having second babies this May. The are due two days apart, and their eldest are both boys, both named Weston. I think that’s pretty cool. Baby quilts are quick and gratifying, so I decided to take a break from the Swoon quilt’s slow progress (I am dragging out just to torture myself I think, others have made 2 or 3 Swoon quilts in the time I’ve made 6 BLOCKS.) and do something FUN to celebrate the two sweet new babies that will be arriving any day now!
This quilt was made for baby Andersen. I didn’t have a theme in mind per say, I just wanted a color scheme that felt a little vintage. I love mustards and light aquas so I started there and then added in darker colors for punch. I was able to use some of my favorite, coveted fabrics on this one- such as the mendocino kelp forest, and Amy Butler’s duck eggs. I realize this means nothing unless you are a fabric nerd. The piecing and quilting are simple, straight line quilting and straight rows of straight blocks. I didn’t measure it, but I would guess it is pretty close to a standard baby quilt size. Perfect for floor time and travel.
I’m in love with this quilt, and I hope baby Andersen loves it to.
