Isabella's teacher was expecting a baby boy just after the school year ended. So for end of year teacher gift I made her a baby quilt. Bella helped pick out the pattern. She liked the idea of some nautical fabrics. Because we moved at the beginning of June, I tried to keep this one pretty simple.
The next baby boy quilt was for some dear friends who had a baby boy also in June. The daddy is a big VW bus enthusiast. I knew Heather Ross did some fabric and pj's, so I scoured etsy until I found some. Then I took my time trying to decide on what to do, I didn't have a lot of the fabric, so in order to maximize I did a square withing a square. I wanted to give it a read beachy feel.
I pulled colors from the vans and used those as my outer squares. I went with a minkee backing in a sand color. I also used four squares on the front with the minkee. The mom and dad loved it, which is what I was aiming for.
