You might remember back in June I needed a baby boy quilt for Hubby’s niece’s baby. It was a boy and as always when in comes to boy quilts, I’m always flustered. I don’t want anything remotely girlish at all!! I ended up making a scrappy modern looking baby quilt with gray and primary colors. Seeing made me think that it was good enough to submit for publication….the only problem, if I sent it out, I wouldn’t have a quilt to gift. I had enough scraps for a second baby quilt so I make another. The second was more free form than the first.
I sent the pictures of the two quilts in deciding that I’d let the magazine pick which quilt they wanted if they decided to choose one of the quilts. The did pick one…They picked the first one I made and it is being featured in the Spring 2018 issue of Quilts and More.
We were in tight deadline to get this one out so I gave it to my friend Carla of Longarm Quilting Inspirations to do the quilting.
As always, we were impressed with Carla’s work. She was so great to squeeze our quilt into her schedule.
I ALSOLUTELY LOVED making this quilt. I opened up my bag of solid scraps and was quilting in no time at all.
Quilts and More worked up their own rendition of our quilt. I always love seeing the alternate color options that the magazines offer! Check it out….
The magazine is just coming to news stands now so you can start being on the lookout. I thought I would include my even more scrappy version that ended up being gifted to Hubby’s Great nephew.
If you want to read more about that version, you can read this post. This uses the same technique only more scrappy and this one has no corner stones. I think it’s fun to see more options.
Check your news stands, it is either there or will be arriving soon! I gotta say, I’m excited to see this one come back. I have a boy baby quilt ready to gift!!
