Here is the first of the baby quilts I need to make for this Spring’s babies. This one is for our friend Becky in Boston who is having a boy. Becky really loves children’s books and always sends us the nicest ones so we wanted to send her a really great book for her and her new baby. We decided on our new favorite, the Bed, Bed, Bed book with CD by They Might be Giants and illustrations by Marcel Dzama. The book has such great colors! I tried to use those same colors in making the quilt. The pattern I used is Broken Dishes and I came up with this swirly quilting pattern to top it off. The binding went ok, although I think I may try hand sewing the next one.
These aren’t the best photos because the light sucks. It’s rainy and dreary here with no signs of letting up so this is what I’ve got. Quilt goes in the mail today and then it’s time to start planning the next one!
