Not all baby quilts are pastel

“It’s very bright” is what my husband said to me.

Many times.

So what.

I was certain that my sister-in-law (who loves orange) would approve of it for her baby girl due at the end of the month. At least tummy time will never be boring.

I used a bunch of Prince Charming fabrics with some solids and a few other coordinates for good measure. I did choose a nice soft flannel for the back for some extra snuggle factor.

Another sister-in-law gave birth to a baby boy last night and I’ll start to work on something for my new nephew. I’m not crazy about unisex quilts so I’ve been waiting. I’ve found some crazy awesome fabric to base it on. Have to wait to tell more on this one until it’s done.

    Oh, I love this bright quilt! It’s nice to have nontraditional quilts and ones that are so fun and happy! Great job!

    Wow! Bright and beautiful is what I’d call it! All your quilts are amazing and I’d love this quilt if I had a baby girl! Great interview on Park City Girl today. Glad I found you!

    The past couple of months I’ve been wearing orange and pink just about every day! Would love to wrap this quilt around me….it would make me very happy 🙂 That is one lucky baby girl!
