I almost forgot that one more quilty finish slipped into the end of 2019. Nick was off of work during Christmas vacation for two weeks and I got this baby quilt done so fast. It was super satisfying!
I made this quilt for a friend and neighbor whom I go to church with. She's cousins with one of my favorite friends I met in Colorado- Leslie. You can see the quilt I made Leslie's daughter here.
Choosing the fabrics for this quilt was almost effortless. I can hardly understand how I was able to choose fabrics so easily for this quilt. Right now I am in the thick of trying to choose fabrics for new quilts and I am really struggling with getting the "right" combination of fabrics to make a pattern look great.... it's difficult sometimes!
The pattern comes from the book Growing Up Modern by Allison Harris. I modified the pattern in the typical way I modify many patterns: I made it bigger! The quilt measures 55" square.
I backed the quilt in a soft minky fabric- this quilt is so snuggly!
The baby receiving this quilt was born around 4 p.m. on February 28- SO close to leap day. His parents did not want him born on leap day, they were relieved it didn't happen- haha!
