My sister, Theresa, is having her first baby soon - hooray! I am so thrilled for her and for her husband. Of course, I had to make the baby a quilt! My only regret is that I did not have it done in time for the baby shower last month. :(
Anyhow, Theresa decided that she would do Baby Harrison's nursery in gray and white. (And by the way, isn't "Harrison" just the best name?) Theresa has a very clean and modern aesthetic, so I thought that more modern quilt would appeal to her. I came up with this:
I just did a "stack and whack" technique that my friend, Anne, taught me after she pulled off this gorgeous quilt for her brother. I added the borders then quilted along the vertical seams and voila.
I also put together four, little burp cloths backed in gray minky. Theresa's husband is a Virginia State Trooper, so I thought they might like this "civil servant" style fabric.
It's my first attempt at a modern-style quilt. Theresa loves it, and her State Trooper husband loves the burp cloths, but what do you think? Please be honest... Modern is not really my style, but maybe I'll give it another shot in the future.
