Boy, Oh Boy!

I just finished a baby quilt for a little boy due this spring.  I chose some bright, contemporary fabrics that made me happy.  Of course, the oranges are my favorites.  The dark brown fabric has vintage cars on it, and that piece was my inspiration fabric.  The other fabrics were chosen to match the colors in the cars.

Both front and back are rather simple on this one.  I machine quilted using a tight stipple.

I embroidered the label with the baby's name.

The verse for this quilt comes from I Samuel 1:27,

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him."

I took a cue from Rita at Red Pepper Quilts. She is forever binding quilts in a black and white stripe, and I love it.  Every. Single. Time.

So, I copied.  And it was a good decision I do believe.

This one is ready to travel to Houston, Texas to welcome a new baby boy!

  1. Fantastic quilt for a very lucky baby boy! Love what you've done with the back, it's fabulous.

    And the binding? ... awesome! So happy you've been inspired; although I am surely not the first to have used a black/white stripe binding.

    Happy holidays!
