My best friend is having a baby later this year and I am so very excited! I know that this little wee one needs a special gift to think of his aunt. After all, he will be raised in Switzerland and we’re all the way over here in the US.
I want to be able to give that little boy (and his mama, of course) a hug each and every day. What better way to send a hug across the Atlantic than to send along a special little quilt?
I made the quilt by piecing together a bunch of half-square-triangles, piecing them together two rows at a time to create the zigzags (or chevrons, if you’re feeling trendy). I finished off the border of the quilt with 4″ wide cream fabric and bound the quilt with some charcoal binding. I kept the quilting minimal in hopes that the quilt would remain wrappable and snuggle-up-able. Mission accomplished.
I used fabric from the Reunion line by Sweetwater. For the binding I used Kona cotton in Charcoal and for the cream color on the front of the quilt I used, well, Cream by Kona :)
I cannot wait to see the soon-to-be-newest little buddy wrapped up in this quilt while resting on his mama’s lap. Hopefully it will feel just like a hug from his Aunt Jacquie.
