Baby Quilt for Mia
I know it has been awhile since I’ve added a post. Who would of ever thought having a fourth baby and starting up an online shop while keeping my day job would keep me crazy busy. But as busy as is I had to make time to create this baby quilt for my friend Nicole. She is having her first baby girl next month and I wanted to make her something special! Taking in the colors Nicole chose for little sweet baby Mia (yes they already named her and isn’t it just the sweetest name) and moms very modern style, I wanted to create something timeless for Mia.
Since the colors were pre chosen, finding fabrics that flowed together was a fairly simple task. When deciding on which fabrics to incorporate in my quilts, first is color which was grey and citron (yellow). Second, the prints must vary in size. I like to use small, medium, and large prints together to create interest and flow. And third, something that will make the quilt pop, whether it be an applique, fabric, or color. Which in this case is the citron fabric. I chose the retro/modern wall paper look. It offered a larger print, the right color and the timeless retro/modern feel. Then I added an embroidered message.
When it came time to sew the quilt I seem to work better under pressure.. or you could just call it what it is, I am a procrastinator. Last minute me was hand sewing the trim with my little Nae Nae on my lap at five in the morning. It was worth it. Now little Mia will have something to always remember her Auntie Anna.
