My contribution is Daddy's Little Girl
We have three little girls that are totally wrapped around their Daddy's little finger. Hence, the inspiration for the zig-zag that wraps up the quilt.
I added an ombre-sk background moving from black to white to bring lots of modern flair, and combined with the quilting (which I did myself and just love!!) the little wrapped zig-zags really pop!!
The final touch was the adorable tiny applique that references those little cuties that inspired the creation from the start :)
The theme of this little Book Tour is Baby Showers, and I have to say, I have attended quite a few baby showers and am becoming quite the baby shower game expert :) That's right, I can undress and dress a baby doll in 15.2 seconds, I can distinguish baby food flavors from sight with uncanny accuracy, and celebrity baby photo guessing, let's just say baby Justin Bieber still looks a lot like teen Justin Bieber.
But after the games, and the goodies comes my favorite part!! The gifts :) I remember the joy of opening all of my adorable little outfits, toys, and blankets for my little ones and I just love to see a new mom ohh and ahh over cute little baby goodies. And nothing get's quite as loved as a personalized handmade baby quilt :)
I have lost track of how many baby quilts I have made for sisters, sister-in-laws, friends, neighbors, teachers, and the list goes on. At one point in time, a few years back, I had a whole group of friends and sister having babies all together and made over 20 baby quilts in about a year and a half. I even remember to take pictures of most of them, which, as this was before the blogging days, is pretty amazing for me. Please excuse the pre-blogging picture quality, but hey, at least they are finally making their debut here at Happy Quilting :)
I just love making Baby quilts!! I have 3 in the works right now and I wouldn't have it any other way!!! I am sure that you will just love Modern Baby and find lots of Baby Quilt Inspiration.
