Here’s the quilt I made recently for our cousins who had a baby earlier this year. This baby boy, Daniel, has such blue eyes, that I took those baby blues as my inspiration for this quilt.
The white fabric is all the same and it has a subtle white-on-white, loop-de-loop print, which I took as the inspiration for the quilting. The blues fabrics, well, the blues are just a little bit of everything I had. Some new fabrics I’d never used, some were left over from other projects. If it was blue and in my stash, it went into the quilt. I separated the blues into light and dark and then used the lighter fabrics as the medium and the darker fabric, well, for the darks. Here’s the layout I came up with in grayscale:
It produces such a graphic look, huh? Very bold and very blue = very boy.
