My friends N and J had their second baby girl in October. Yay!
The second quilt I ever made was for N and J’s wedding. One of the first baby quilts I ever made (maybe the first? or the second?) was a quilt for N and J’s baby C. They are now in possession of three Rozsamaria originals. 🙂
Here are links to my posts on the other two quilts:
(Side note: Per the above post, I promised to write a post about a runner I made for my parents and I don’t think I ever did that. Perhaps that will have to be an Advent post…)
For their new baby, N (I’ll call her Baby!N to differentiate between her and her mother, N), I wanted to use this quilt book: “Big One-Star Quilts by Magic” by Nancy Johnson-Srebro. You’ll recall that I used that to make a quilt for my aunt M:
(This post is filling up with links already!)
N doesn’t like all-pink for girls. (The quilt I made for their first baby, C, has a windowpane pattern using a yellow banana print as a base, with squares in primary colors and blue and yellow flannels for borders. I love the banana print. I have very little of it left now, several years later, but I wanted very much to use a piece of it in the new quilt for baby N.) I spent some time thinking about a color scheme and I finally decided on green, purple, and yellow.
Here are all the cut pieces:
Look at the bottom left hand corner at the small piece of yellow fabric on top of the green piece. I don’t know if you can tell this in the picture (I suspect you can’t) but it’s the banana print fabric that I used to make the window panes in C’s quilt.
Tomorrow: the sewing!
