When my customer chose brown for the color of the backing and framing for this quilt I was hesitant. The quilt was for her mom and her mom's decor was brown! Soooo, out I went searching for something brown that would go with the colors in the quilt.

I found this beautiful milk chocolate color fabric with polka dots in all the colors that were in the quilt! I couldn't believe how the brown brought out all the pinks, blues and yellows so well.

And the white flannel in the middle toned the bloom down just enought. I think it came out very nicely, don't you?

I just know that mom is going to be thrilled with this lapsized quilt. It not only has blocks from her daughter's baby clothes, but also her grandchildren's baby clothes.

Something else I did differently on this quilt was to group the four-patch blocks by color as much as I could. You know, pinks with pinks, blues with blues, etc. I really like it better than the random piecing. Anyway, I'm very happy with this quilt. It's already on it's way to my customer. I hope she and her mom enjoy it!


  1. Barbara, every baby quilt you make is even better. Pretty!
