It's fabric Tuesday on Quiltstory! Here's what I've been working on today
I recently finished a quilt I know I can't part with, so it now sits in my "someday baby drawer" along with some other things I've picked out for our hopefully not-so-in-the-future critter. Since it was definitely a boy quilt, I wanted to make one for a little girl to have in my drawer as well. (By the way, honey, consider this another mention of how I'd love a hope chest instead of a drawer to keep this all in. I'm not saying, but Christmas is coming soon... :) ) Without further ado, here's my baby girl quilt!
The pattern is called New Waves from Oh, Fransson! She has lots of beautiful, modern patterns that I just love and has a new book coming out soon that I can't wait to get my hands on!
I spent a lot of time trying to find the right color for the back. I wanted the quilt to be obviously girly, but not too pink. The yellow I ended up with (Kona in banana) works well, I think, at keeping it female but not too babyish and pink. I like it, and I guess that's all that matters :)
I'm so excited to have this quilt done. I hope it will be a great companion to a sweet little girl someday!
