Sparkle Punch Baby Quilt
I finished a commissioned baby quilt today that I rather like! It is for a friend who wants a gift for a new baby girl. She asked the baby girl's parents what their "colour scheme" was for their daughter's room and they told her, and I quote, "deep reds and tans with an Indo-African influence and lots of white..." Oooookay! So here is what I came up with!
The pattern comes from Elizabeth Hartman on her blog, Oh Fransson! And it's called "Sparkle Punch"! I embroidered the baby girl's name in the bottom corner in red perle cotton on the white section, and the date she was born. The main prints come from Daisy Janie's line, Tilly, and are organic. I had some white in my stash - a cotton sheet - and a little matching brown print, Zen Garden by Patty Young (just one star). The backing is from Urban Chicks, and their Urban Cowgirl line. The binding is a linen I had in my stash, Essex from Robert Kaufman in Putty.
