Who says baby quilts have to be colorful and whimsical?
Most certainly not me.
Although I do love color and wholeheartedly embrace whimsy, I love making crisp white baby quilts.
Meet Peyton. Her mommy works in advertising and Target is her big client. Everyday at work Peyton's mommy is inundated with color.
Loud, vibrant, saturated color.
At home, she wants a rest from the color. This is the family living room and that tiny baby in the gorgeous white bowl is Peyton.
For Peyton's quilt, I used eyelet remnants from shirt designer Craig Taylor for a touch of girly, japanese double gauze, flax colored linen, pin wale corduroy, seersucker from Mood and straight up utility cotton for beautiful texture and variety. Every fabric was soft, and most importantly, washable!
Her name is hand embroidered tone on tone. It's subtle, (can you even see it?) but it's there.
I love that Peyton's mommy isn't afraid to throw it on the floor and get it dirty. It's loved.
Maybe it will be the quilt Peyton remembers when she grows up. That would make me very happy.
Neutral baby quilt = Bullseye.
P.S. I sent Peyton this fluffy white llama (photo at top) along with her quilt. Red Llama? White Llama? It's all good.
