* Baby Quilt – part II

Posted on August 6th, 2007 by becket. Filed under Uncategorized.


Hi – this is Becket again. I haven’t posted in a while because I recently moved to the SF area. I’ve been very sad leaving such good friends behind like Maitreya and Amy!! But, between email and Apple iChat (and the blogosphere) I plan to stay connected as ever!

I recently made a baby quilt – this time for my own future baby. I liked the color combo so much on the last quilt I made for a friend at work, that I decided to copy it, but change the overall layout and design. Although this design is more traditional, I’m hoping that the colors and the fabrics give it that much-needed modern edge. Maitreya had the great idea to tie the quilt only on the solid squares. I really like how that looks.

I sewed a long tube of fabric along the back for easy wall-hanging with a wooden dowel. I was thinking of hanging the quilt above the crib. Here I am holding up the quilt proudly in our backyard back East…

Oh, and stay tuned for a post from Maitreya on a BEAUTIFUL quilt she made for my baby – and the really cool technique she used to construct it…

    Oh, I love it. I don’t think there are many colors that you can pair up with brown and it doesn’t look good.

    Welcome to the SF Bay Area! I’m a native New Yorker who moved here last year by way of Chicago. So I understand the difficulty of leaving good friends behind. The baby quilt is beautiful. I’m working on projects for my soon-to-be-here baby boy (mostly knitting). I’d love to work on a baby quilt and yours are inspiring. I look forward to seeing more projects on your blog.
