Corner Stars Baby Quilt

FINALLY! Someone "ok with pink" had a baby. 

A Baby Girl (Quilt)

When my daughter was born (um... over 2 years ago...) I finally got to pull out this little patchwork quilt top that I'd been saving "just in case I have a girl" 💗. She's my second child, so... it's fitting that it has taken this long to post.

Sliced Stripes Baby Quilt

I've long admired Meg Callahan's quilts, and this baby quilt is inspired by her aesthetic.

While I didn't hope to replicate the intricacy and scale of her designs, I stuck to just two fabrics (!) and focused on the overall texture of the sliced stripes in a field of white.

I used one of my favorite Anna Maria Horner prints from her Honor Roll collection, and some solid Kona White. They are SO bright despite the dreary lighting of a Maine November.

For the backing, I chose a navy star charts print from Hawthorne Threads, and kept the straight line quilting pretty minimal to match the sliced stripes.

Triangle Patchwork Baby Quilt

Back when there was still snow on the ground, I finished up this small and sweet triangle patchwork baby quilt.

Improv Flying Geese Baby Quilt

This darling baby quilt features flocks of wonky, improvised flying geese in navy, teal, and gold prints and solids. They're set on a greige sky (Kona stone). 

Usually, the process of making flying geese is very industrial for me. (I crank 'em out with the second method here, and have wound up with too many in the past!)
