make music wherever you go ~ guitar baby quilt


When I saw the Fat Quarter Baby book I knew I was going to make the 'Kevin' quilt for my sister and brother in law (who loves playing guitar). At that point she wasn't even pregnant but I could have given it to them for the cat. Earlier this year, however, my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and so I had a reason to finish the quilt, which I gifted last week. Prepare to be bombarded with baby cuteness...







Fabrics:
Starshine in Nightfall, Rhoda Ruth by Elizabeth Hartman; Lined Grids in Yarrow, Dow by Carolyn Friedlander; Southwest Key in Nature, Rhoda Ruth by Elizabeth Hartman; Crosshatch in Chestnut, Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander; Ant March in Citron, Picnic by Melody Miller and Coming Home in Clay, Bound by April Rhodes
Background: Subdivided in Grey, Doe by Carolyn Friedlander
Backing: Butter Churn in Navy, Feed Company by Sweetwater

Pattern: Kevin quilt from Fat Quarter Baby

Quilted with Aurifil 40wt #2600 and 12wt #4241 for the guitar strings.


She is so precious!
Happily her parents love the quilt and it's currently in her cot :)
