This simple baby quilt was a response to my son's request for a gift for his teacher's baby. She had her first child today, a little girl.
I chose a clean, modern design that has been in a my sketchbook for a while. It was quick to make (which was necessary since he asked me to make it just a week before her last day!), and the solids I picked create a great space to showcase free motion quilting designs. I quilted a different design in each color with matching thread. Each of these designs can be found in Angela Walter's book Free-Motion Quilting.
I picked three shades of pink from my stash, white, and grey sketch binding.
I hope it is used and loved for years. It was a pleasure to make for someone who has put so much time and care into teaching my child.
I have plans to make a couple of these 40 x 50 quilts in other colors for my etsy shop, but you know what they say about plans. Want to make your own Waves Baby Quilt? The pattern is now available as an instant download PDF.
