Going to some friends who are expecting a little girl next month.
I noticed from the expecting mom's pinterest that she was drawn to soft pastel colors and grays for the nursery. I chose to use some heavy weight fabrics for the back so that it would be a durable play mat/ stroller quilt. They still washed up nice and soft.
It is difficult to see in the bright morning light but the center fabric is flanked by a purple print and then a white with purple print. To bring back the puple color at the edges I chose a light purple print for the binding.
Oh and here is my piecing mistake. It is very subtle. Do you see it now?
The lower left block should be rotated 90 degrees. I don't think anyone else will notice. It will be our little secret.
The clamshell quilting (tutorial by Don't call me Betsy) gives this blanket a bubble wrap feel which I love.
Now I have more than two weeks to figure out what my March goal should be...
