Pink and Brown Baby Quilt

A girl we went to college with just had a baby girl and she was looking for someone to make a memory quilt. These 2 fabrics were something her sister had and she wanted to incorporate them into some kind of blankie for her daughter. I didn’t have much fabric that to matched so I steered toward super pink, but her mom is good with super pink. The corduroy looks more brown in real life, so I went brown to mix with these.

First the security blankets, the original fabrics, plus satin and a pop of bright pink. I think this is all she was truly asking for but….

I am a sucker for little girls so I went a little farther and did a quilt. Okay, I guess that is a LOT farther…

And this is where I fall short in documenting the quilt. Husband set the camera to some ridiculous low pixel setting without my knowing and these are the actual size that pictures are coming out now. My 3 year old phone takes better pictures! But I didn’t know this sadness before I sent the quilt away, so lets just pretend it is 1998 and these digital pictures are awesome. Big pinwheels! Birds and Butterflies! Appliqued satin heart! Pretend like you can see all that…

And the back. Kind of lackluster but has the remainder of the memory fabric and a border of a vintage sheet. If only it were bigger than a postage stamp!

  1. The thing I find most difficult about quilting is the making fabric choices. Your fabric choices are amazing!

    • Thanks Dani, I find I like the matching and cutting far more than the sewing, it leaves a lot of works-in-process!
