They are finally done, and not a minute too early as those babies are due any time now! I am so excited for this sweet family and hope and pray for all good things for them. What a blessing to be able to be a part of this.
Well, here they are- all finished and super cute! This “Houndstooth” pattern by V and Co. has been so much fun to make, especially using the Quarter-Square Triangle Ruler by Creative Grids. The color combo just about lit up my world, and I hope it does the same for those sweet babies. Their mommy has been waiting a while for them, and deserves a lovely nursery to welcome them!
I hope this isn’t the photo that WordPress chooses to post to Facebook, only because it is not nearly as fun as the others! Along with the quilts and knitted pillows, I also made crib skirts for each crib. I love this domino dot in black and white- it is a great punch to add to the solid colors in the quilts.
I was really excited to find the backing for Baby Boy’s quilt. The architectural bridge drawings just seemed to give it the right finishing touch. Modern and sophisticated, but also decidedly boyish.
And just as I loved the backing for Baby Boy’s quilt, I was just as thrilled about the backing for Baby Girl’s quilt. The birds softened the lines of the houndstooth, and the color was perfect.
The crib quilts finished about 40″x40″ with each square in the quilt 2 3/4″ finished, but the pattern does have directions for larger quilts. However, the larger quilts use the larger version of the Quarter-Square Triangle Ruler and each square in the quilt is larger.
I hate that there is so much glare on this photo and that I didn’t notice it before I shipped off the quilts! Anyway, switching the dark and light greys made Baby Girl’s quilt a little softer palate than Baby Boy’s, but still modern and crisp. I really love how both turned out.
