According to UPS Tracking info, this was JUST delivered. So I’m posting the blog I wrote last week. I pray they enjoy this as much as I did.
I was asked to create a totally unique baby suite for an old college friend, his too sweet wife, and their brand new baby girl.
The pictures aren’t nearly as good as usual. It’s been a MILLION degrees outside. So I had to set up indoors.
I used Connecting Threads Batiks, and the bright teal is a Robert Kaufman. It came out amazing!
Hard to believe this set will live in Alaska! LOL
LOVED the ruffled skirt! So girly.
The 2 long inner panels were striped. Only the back panel had the hibiscus detail.
That hibiscus was a pain to work with, but SOOOOO worth it!
The front panel has 3 waves rolling across it.
I wanted a touch more color on the front, hence the waves.
AND the sweet ORANGE bows!
I used flannel on the back, so it quilted up extra crinkly once washed.
See how pretty that hibiscus is? Yup—totally worth it!!
And last, a small throw pillow. I wish now that I’d made it larger. But I really have no scraps left!!!!! And a pop of orange. Piping and quilting are both orange.
I really enjoyed this set. It stretched my brain to design it, and stretched my skills to applique it. And I’m just realizing that I have no good pictures of the back! But I double color quilted it.
This was a cell picture. and the only one I have! rats.
Oh well. It’s done, and shipped. And in it’s new home. On to the next project!!
peace and pieces,
