A Different Baby Quilt
There is nothing usual about this baby quilt. In fact, this quilt is a "first" on so many different levels. First, it's 50 x 70, which is pretty large for a baby quilt. Second, the colors are way out of my comfort level, but I do like these fabrics. Third, I didn't wash these fabrics. Instead I washed the quilt twice when it was completed. Since the batting is 100% cotton Warm N Natural, it has puckered and softened beautifully. The texture of the quilt is what I prefer.
This quilt is for my friend Cecilia's third grandchild, and she gave me permission to do what I wanted. What a great opportunity to try new things on this quilt! This design is "Fashion District" from Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr's Quilts Made Modern.
