Here’s a little inspiration for a baby boy quilt. This quilt (previously chronicled here – as well as my fashion faux-pas) is now finished.
And I am in love. If it weren’t for an adorable new nephew with whom I am trying to curry good favor and a cherished title of “favorite aunt” (the competition is stiff!), I just may not have given it up.
Look at this boy. Can you blame me??
I think that one of the things that I love about this quilt is that none of the prints came from the same fabric collection. My sister chose the Alexander Henry jungle print – which we used on the back – and from there she just looked for colors. (A good example of using a focus fabric and then pulling coordinating fabrics.) The white sashing definitely ties everything together.
I like how it isn’t your traditional baby boy look, but it’s definitely boy. Do you know what I mean? The quilt is going to go with this bumper pad. I also like that the quilt and bumper coordinate but aren’t super matchy-matchy. (That’s what you get when both parents are artistic. I mean, look how their kid turned out.) I may take the scraps and make one to keep for myself.
