My lack of posting is not necessarily reflective of a lack of sewing, so let's play catch-up!
Here's a baby quilt for a high school friend's first child. I was in her wedding a bazillion years ago so it's about time that she and her husband gave her mom grandchildren! The first was a little boy, so I used the (FREE!) pattern from Robert Kaufman Fabrics called Hanging Garden (I downsized it to 6 blocks by 7 blocks to be baby sized). I thought it had a bit of a mid-century modern vibe so instead of lining up the rows I staggered them a bit so that the flowing lines would be slightly wonky.
As usual with baby quilts, I opted for black and white with an accent color.
Here's the final result:

Here's the texture pre-wash/dry:
I love love love the final texture after drying. I used Warm & Natural batting.
