I love the color combinations that you're using. In fact, I think I recognize some of your fabrics - they're in my stash, too :)
Oh I really love, love, love the colors and fabrics! This is going to be an awesome baby's quilt...I did not know it was called a sprinkle either!
Wow, I say ditto to what Mary said - such pretty fabrics. This will be gorgeous
caitcreates Thanks! You have excellent taste, LOL. But seriously, I had a field day over at Intrepid Thread picking out the fabric for this one.
True Thanks! I was going for a non-baby look but still something that was fresh and calming. Quite the opposite of what I made for grand son #1. Then again, that was my first quilt and I had no idea how to pick fabric.
Love this! Great colors with all that fresh, crisp white!
Carolmarie Exactly what I was going for, calming.So glad to hear I wasn't the only one who never heard of a Sprinkle! Makes sense and is rather cute though.
Laweigel Thanks, I'm a big fan of the crisp clean white even though it's a risk with a baby quilt!
How exciting and congrats! I love the colors!
Terryt this is beautiful. Those colors are perfect for a baby boy! We just had Grand baby girl # 2 last week!! I haven't started her quilt yet but plan to soon! I have never heard of a "Sprinkle" shower but that is adorable!!
Terry - I love the fabrics you've chosen for this beautiful quilt! So great. Can't wait to see it all done. Wow, that baby will be here before you know it!!!!
Conniharns Congrats on grandbaby girl #2!! I'm so glad someone is producing girls because it's been all boys in my daughter's circle. I made 6 quilts for boys last year and now we're on round 2!
Have you picked out a pattern yet? I can so see this one done up in "girlie" colors!
ArloDeanQuilts Thanks! I'm done with all the blocks and will be starting on making the rows today. Thank God it's cool this weekend for a change!
Caribousmom Thanks! When I look at this it reminds me of the beach. I am just loving these colors lately.
Terry - totally baby chic - or maybe beach baby chic...
HawkFan Cute names! I keep saying Beach Baby Bingo in my mind and I have NO idea why. What was the name of that old Elvis movie?
Beach Blanket Bingo was a Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello movie. I know because my husband mentions it from time to time. The bad guy was Eric von Zipper which has always stuck with him
So I was close! Well at least as far a s the title. Obviously didn't recall it was Frankie and not Elvis. That is funny that your husband would still remember Eric von Zipper.
Oh my gosh, don't get me started on my husband and the whole Eric von Zipper thing. He can be such a goofball sometimes. I think he's told me about the movie a hundred times.
I"m married to one of those too! I claim it's the engineer border line Asperger's in him! He just can't help himself even though he KNOWS he has told me the same thing a hundred times.
You are cruising' along!!
I love the blues and the pattern is so cute and looks like it comes together quickly! Hey, I think I have that book . . . I'd better go check. Congrats on the new little grand baby, they are so much fun to cuddle.
Kathie Thanks! In the book she has chose some very neutral fabric so it doesn't jump out and grab you. But this would be a great pattern to showcase any fabric (John Deere tractor, Cute little girl fabric, or whatever your heart desires!)
What great fabrics and colors, and the pattern makes this a quilt that will go way beyond the baby years. I'm looking forward to seeing how you will quilt this!
Terrysim YIkes I have no idea! But it will have to be some version of straight line quilting because I'm too chicken to try FMQ. Any suggestions???
I suggest... trying FMQ!!! What better time to try it than on a quilt for your own grandson?! Every time you see it you will remember how you bravely expanded your boundaries. Maybe that would be a good name for the quilt: Brave Boy!
Terry this is just beautiful...I love the borders and the colors amazing!! Your new little one is going to love this for years and years.
Terrysim What a great name, "Brave Boy" but I think I'm going with "Chicken S%!@ Grandma!" I just can't take that step yet. Forgive me!
True Thanks! Going store shopping at Intrepid Thread made it a snap to pick out the fabric. She has SO many wonderful bolts of amazing fabric. You need to come to San Jose for that alone!
What a wonderful baby quilt!-yes yes, baby chic for sure:)
HAHA! It will be perfect, whatever you decide to do! "Made with love" - can't go wrong!!
Love the back!!!
What a great back, Terry!!! See it is not so bad after all :)
I think the dreading it is worse than the actual doing it - at least it usually is for me. It looks great!
Love the back. Now you are going to be hooked and want to piece all your backs. I just love the colors, they seem so calm to me. He is going to be all cozy under it. You go grandma.
Love pieced backs! Working on right now. I just love using up all the remaining fabric from the project. Great job!!!
Jenhighfill Thanks! It doers take a "bit" more time planning it though doesn't it? But well worth it when it's all done.
Love the scrappy binding!! This is beautiful and looks so pretty and cozy all folded and ready to go. What a beautiful quilt for the new little one!!
I haven't done a pieced binding yet but that's my plan for my son's quilt just back from the long-arm quilter. I love the look of yours.
Carolmarie Thanks! I think I'm loving this quilt enough to put in in my top 5. For whatever reason I am loving this color combination. And thanks for the cheering on my UFO pile. I have so many future projects floating in my head that I'm dying to get started on.
It turned out beautifully Terry!
Terry, it came out BEAUTIFULLY!!!!
Caribousmom THANKS!! I'm glad I'm keeping this in the family. Such a far cry from the 1st quilt I did (for grand baby#1).
Terry this came out so cute. Love these colors and so fresh for your new boy bambino! The back came out great also..it's perfect!!
Wow Terry, this is wonderful. He is going to be enjoying this for many years to come. Great love the color of it. Great job my friend.
Thanks Conniharns and + Quilt455! I am happy with the fabric I chose. I was shooting for fresh! I may regret having so much white in it but they'll just have to keep their 170 lb mastif off it!
Congrats on the little one's arrival and in time to join you for Thanksgiving!! So exciting.
love the colors. It turned out fantastic
Congrats on the new little one! Happy Thanksgiving!!
Congratulations on the quilt and grandson. You have to edit your information on your studio page now you know! It still says grandmother of 1.
What a perfect quilt for a new little man! COngratulations on the new arrival!
