My daughter co-hosted a baby shower over the weekend for her best friend Karlie. I decided to make and send a baby quilt, so the last couple weeks I spent planning and sewing. Karlie's colors are rainbow, and she prefers simple to fussy; I found this Gray Square Scramble digital pattern by Corey Yoder that fit the bill. I scaled it down from twin size to about 48" x 54".
Here is what my daughter texted during the shower. Check out the darling cowboy hat and boots Karlie's mother crocheted! (Can you tell we both like exclamation points? )
Moda Marbles and a soft gray dot for the small squares; light gray for the large squares
Patio Lights from Flight Patterns collection by Tamara Kate, one of my favorites, edged with leftover blocks from the front
My husband chose Kona Coal for the binding, and I think he made a great choice!
Quilting was diagonal wavy lines to contrast the straight lines on the large squares
My next project is this cute pumpkin pillow from Stitched With Love in McKinney, TX. My daughter saw it on their website and fell in love with it, so I talked to the store owner and ordered it. My daughter is visiting later this week, so I hope to finish it. This will be my first time paper piecing, so wish me luck!
