new baby quilts

so, in the last few months I’ve quilted up a few tops that are for new babies–these little ones are so lucky!  What’s new are the colors–I mean COLORS! Brights with lots of contrast. Also new are the themes. Dancing crows, silly chickens, and Monet impressionist prints, to start. And omg, check out the mama and baby giraffe with needle-turned applique’ spots and dimensional leaves (for teething). Wow. It’s easy to see that these quilters get caught up with the textiles and textures and don’t let go! I’m so pleased to be part of that process–go, baby!

  sunflowers were the obvious choice for quilting
