Shower Tonight

Well, actually, I shower in the morning. 

But tonight I'm going to a shower... a baby shower for a new mom at church!  And baby showers mean baby quilts, yah?

The mom-to-be doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl, but I probably would've made the same quilt either way.  I'm just not a pastel person, y'know?

Inspired by this...
... by the fabulously creative Monica, at Happy Zombie, I decided to add a bit more color by widening the strips, and came up with this:


A summer baby deserves (my version of) a lawn chair quilt, yah?


I love, love, love the wrinkly vibe a quilt has after it's been washed a time or two.  And that batik fabric in the border is my personal all-time favorite.  I'm hoarding what I have left for The Perfect Project.  For me.  But in the meantime, I sprinkle a little of it here and there.  Just right for a summer quilt.


Hope she likes it :D

I'm sure she'll love it! I certainly would!
I also love the crinkliness of a quilt.

Yah. Even more than a lawn chair, it speaks of sunshine and the lake ~ yay for summer!

Well done, Julie!

Super quilt. I haven't started a new quilt in years. I too like bold colors because then you can use them for pretty lap quilts or throws.

That is a perfect quilt - for a girl or a boy! I have a feeling that little one will make that quilt a security blanket - just too sweet!
