A New Baby Quilt – A WIP

There have been a lot of babies that have come into our lives these last several months. I always get excited about newborns, and it never gets old.

This little girl, who lives in Los Angeles is going to get a quilt that looks very similar to this pattern.

Brenda Ratliff@justabitfrayed designed this beauty. 

Marigold’s mom chose aqua and peach for the baby’s colors. The aqua is not a pure aqua. But I found just the right shade in the third photo below.

I have been collecting lots of text and low volume prints for this project.

And have been busy sewing away.

This is really a fun pattern and uses just a pop or two of color. Tonight at quilt clinic, I will be making the peach colored squares.

The scraps will definitely make up the back.  I’m playing around with a few designs for that.

Stay tuned.

Happy Quilting!!
