Roe Baby Quilt

I was commissioned to make a baby quilt for a new family.  The customer was kind enough to tell me specific things she liked about other quilts I have made, so what we came up with is mash up of some of my favorites, which is fun.
I used the color progression of this quilt, with the circular quilting of this quilt (which is actually the same type of quilting that Jolene used in the original quilt which inspired me).
 Finally, I included a personalized version of the pieced back in this quilt.
 
 And I got use my new tags by Gutentags!
 
It finished at a large crib quilt of 48 x 60, so it'll serve this baby for a long time.  I hope it's just what she wanted!

I love the colors of this quilt - expecially for a baby. I really love your eye for color and how it flows together:) I will use this for inspiration and really like how you made your backing.

It's all lovely, but that baby's name pieced on the back is a new idea to me. So special!
