Well what to do with all that left over pink fabric? Hilary to the rescue! Thank goodness she had beautiful baby Audrey, who has already been the victim of a homemade gift (see the buttoned-up baby wrap). But I couldn’t let the baby wrap be her only present (seeing as I think that’s a one time use kind of gift), so a quilt is perfect!
The quilt inspiration board on Pinterest is just overflowing with ideas. But there was one that I pinned early on and I’ve been itching to make! It’s the Color Block Quilt from Bijou Lovely Designs. Just perfect for all the leftover pink I’ve got – I only needed to pick up the sashing, and two other colors to come up with my version:
And I super duper love it. It covers all my obsessions of modern clean design, ombre, and adorable baby size (Ahem, Race for the Cure quilt, this is sooooooo much easier than king size!). But as much as I love it, after I made the top, I just couldn’t leave it at this…..
No, I felt the need to come up with something spectacular for the back as well. I mean, who says you can’t piece the back too? And I still had tons of pink! So I set to work on a monogrammed design that has me flashing back to the pixelated graphics of the video games of my youth:
The back actually took me longer to make than the front! That’s a lot of little squares to sew together. But it’s the perfect pair to the fabulous front and now there can be no stealing of this quilt! It’s all Audrey’s!
