I recently completed a crib-sized quilt for a friend. I chose the fabrics according to the fact that her nursery carpet is blue; though she is having a baby girl.
Sorry for the blurriness of the finished-quilt-pictures...I think my camera might be giving up on life.
It's a simple checkerboard pattern. The only thing I would have done differently is to use the flatter, cotton batting that I normally use; instead of the puffier, polyster batting that I used this time. I've noticed that people prefer puffy/fluffy when it comes to baby quilts, so I caved. Except my choice of pattern, fabrics, and quilting style is very old-fashioned and the flatter, classic cotton batting would have suited this much better. Oh well. I guess if I was a perfect quilter, I'd have a big plaque hanging somewhere stating as much. :)
As I worked on this quilt, I mused how it would have suited my sister-in-law's tastes better, instead of the quilt (pictured below) that I made for her baby girl... (you see, I know that we both love bohemian styled clothes and housewares, etc; so I made a wild, bohemian quilt for her...but I missed the boat b/c her style, which very much suits her little girl, is very "English garden" or calico-on-the-prairie or a cross between the two) Yes, at any rate, this one is certainly very eye-catching... LOL.
