I’ve had a bunch of new babies to make quilts for recently and liked the idea of using the large-scale prints – like the large Chevrons – as the feature design for the quilt, and then personalize a little by adding a contemporary monogram. In this case, the chevrons also create a perfect guide for the quilting. This quilt was quilted by Melissa Kelly who added the cute pebbles to set off the monogram circle.
I decided to add minkie to the back of one of the quilts. Both are crib sized. Melissa also custom quilted this one as well.
One more fun thing to share. (This one also makes me break out into a cold sweat!) I am going to be teaching this fall at Riley Blake’s Fabric Fest. (What, what, what??) I will admit to getting slightly nauseous when I saw my name on the same schedule as Eleanor Burns, Nancy Zieman, and Lori Holt. That song from Sesame Street “One of these things is not like the others…” kept running through my head.
