Phewf…it’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog but for good reason! We had a beautiful baby girl on September 11th! I was 41 weeks and a day pregnant so the wait seemed like it took forever. She arrived happy and healthy and we love her to bits. This project I made for my dear friend, David, during my last few weeks of pregnancy. I was inspired by the bright coloured fabrics I saw at the fabric store and wanted to make something totally different! (If you’ve been following, I’ve mostly made girly, baby things lately!) I loved making this quilt as it was a welcome distraction to my impatience of anticipating the arrival of our baby girl!
I didn’t follow a pattern however, I was inspired by this quilt here. I love the modern look to it and thought my friend would love it too.
To make it more personalized, I appliquéd his 2 dogs to the quilt! One is a Chihuahua and the other is a Toy Rat Terrier.
Judging by this photo, I think they liked it! xoxo.
