A friend of mine is having a baby, her first baby, and it's a little girl! I'm so, so excited for her. Of course I knew I had to make her a quilt! I asked what her nursery colors are going to be (more like demanded to know… ) and she said coral, aqua and yellow. How perfect is that! Those are my favorite colors (plus navy and grey)! What a perfect color palette for a baby's nursery.
I know she didn't technically say navy and grey, but I just couldn't help myself! I used a Herringbone pattern, it's a free pattern on Moda's webpage. The pattern features the Mixed Bag line, which we carry in brushed cottons in our store - and they are heavenly!
Since it was for a baby, I wanted to go for more of a toddler size than the larger size featured on the pattern. I used a variety of every print my heart desired and cut 2 1/2" strips instead of using a jelly roll. The backing is a Michael Miller solid called Geranium, it's so soft!
I took it home to photograph since we have a crib, what I didn't anticipate was little man wanting back in his crib during my photography session. This picture explains my life perfectly; beautiful quilt, rambunctious little boy!
Here are the quilt stats:
Pattern: Herringbone by StudioM
Size: 44" x 52"
