Several months ago I pieced this quilt for my new baby nephew. Then a few months later I finally quilted it. Then I eventually gave it to Kristofer (and his mom and dad) when we visited them at Easter. They requested blue and brown -- and it was a palette I really enjoyed.
In the bottom right panel I stitched his name. Can you see it in the picture above?
I haven't done any machine piecing in a long time. I improvised this "pattern," and it didn't come together as easily as I would have expected.
We all think Kristofer is just the cutest thing ever. He's not a chubby faced Gerber baby, he has his own super cute baby look.
I really enjoyed picking out the fabrics. I think it's a fun mix of patterns and tones.
I loved this scribbly fabric for the back and I tried to make it a bit more interesting with that pieced bar. Very modern, right?
