My mom and I made our first collaborative quilt together this summer as a baby shower gift for a friend. We used my Fletching pattern from Scraps II. We just scaled down the blocks to 8″ square and used a 5 x 5 layout for the perfect 40″ square baby quilt. The mom has chosen a light mint green for the nursery walls. I happened to have a few yards of mint green Kona on hand and then between my mom’s stash and my stash, we came up with lots of fun prints in the mint/navy/chartreuse families to coordinate.
We managed to sneak in mushroom, lamb, panda, and ladybug prints and yet the quilt is still not super cutesy so it should grow with the baby boy nicely I think!
I straight line quilted every 1/2″ with mint green Aurifil. The binding print pulled our color scheme together and my mom had just enough of it so we lucked out! She hand stitched the binding in her nice, neat stitches.
I hope that baby Sam enjoys his quilt when he enters the world this fall. We had fun making it.
