Hating On My Baby Quilt!




I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th. My sister and her family came up so we meant at my parents house cause they have a pool, pond and my Dad is the best griller around!! We ate too much, shot off a ton of illegal fireworks, laughed way too loud and enjoyed every minute of it!!




I finished a baby quilt that I am giving to my sweet SIL. She and my BIL have tried and tried to have a baby and finally their baby girl is due on Halloween!!! My MIL embroidered these little Sunbonnet Sue blocks and asked me to make them into a quilt so that we could give the baby a gift from both of us. The blocks are darling and her embroidery is beautiful. I did think that they were a little pale and needed a little kick. I found the sweet pink floral for the border and knew that I wanted to use it for this quilt. I tried all sorts of fabric for the sashing around the blocks. I went with this green because: 1. I love this green. 2. The floral has little green leaves in it. 3. I thought it added a nice kick to the quilt. WELL, let me tell you! People around here have been hating on this quilt!! My husband and daughter do not like the green at all!! I thought about going with a sunny yellow or blue, maybe I should have. It is quilted now so I'm not changing it. What do you think?

Sounds like you all had a great 4th!!

I LOVE the baby quilt. It is SOOOO cute! I think it is a bright pop of color for the quilt. Maybe they aren't liking it because it is not a "traditional" baby color. I think it is great! Babies don't always need pastels and pale colors. Primary and bright colors are perfect too and will catch the baby's attention.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.♥

This is a perfectly lovely baby quilt. I make them in very untraditional colors, prints and designs and so far they have all been well loved and well used. I think your quilt will be too!

I love the quilt, green and all! Green & pink are lovely together! I'm amazed that someone wouldn't like it.
