Friends of ours in Austin just had a baby last week! I’d made them a super simple baby quilt, and since we were in town to celebrate my sister’s birthday, we got to drop it off in person and see the baby (who is seriously one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen) at only three days old.
From the mom’s own blog and her pinterest nursery board, I knew she loved gray and white chevron and had pinned this fabric. For the quilting, I stitched down the centers of some of the stripes (with white thread on both white and gray stripes). I’ve only just now realized this is two chevron quilts in a row, but they were both because the people I was making them for liked chevron separately.
I’d been eyeing this super cuddly minky fabric at JoAnn’s with these adorable whales for months, just trying to come up with an excuse to buy some. When Eddie and I decided we wanted to make a quilt for this baby, I knew I wanted to use this for the back. It is so, so soft! I also love the seafoam green color with the gray and white on the front.
The quilt is roughly 2.5′ by 4′. I machine sewed on the binding using the plaid scottie’s tutorial to make sure it would be durable.
