Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Lavender Baby Finish


img_2758Today I finished a pretty little baby quilt for a new little cousin.  It was inspired by the color of her room.

IMG_2760.JPGI know you’ve seen this design before (a few times!), but I wanted to keep the pieces large to show the ribbon print fabric, so here it is in living color.  I also used a piece of the new Grunge collection, which perfectly bridges the spectrum between lavender and orchid.  The light fabrics are hard to see here, but they are dots and chevrons on cream.
