So, I just ripped open the box containing my copy of modern Baby–Easy, Fresh, and Fun Quilt Designs. And it looks so pretty. It is my first ever quilt project in a book. Woot! Who doesn’t want to be in a book, right? Right.
modern baby is a lovely, curated book with fun quilts for babies designed by modern quilters/ bloggers such as Shea Henderson (of Empty Bobbin) and Carolyn Friedlander among so many others.
The book is available now at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, ShopMartingale.com, and your LOCAL SHOP!!!
I based The Birdhouse Quilt on a painting I created for a series of greeting cards for Wishfulls.com over here. (You gotta love Kinko’s huge printers for scaling up artwork to create quilt patterns.) This design is sweet and cheerful. The quilt is easy to create, because the entire image is created with fusible appliqué, so it is really like making a big collage.
