Not only is my friend Caroline about to have her first born, but so is my dear friend Annika. Due with a boy in early October, I recently finished up a crib quilt for him. For Annika's quilt, I used a pattern from Blue Underground Studios called Posh Tot. Annika is a modern girl who loves exciting colors but also simplicity at the same time. I thought this pattern was perfect for her and the little bambino-to-be.
Because the pattern was less involved, I felt that it had to be pretty heavily quilted for it to have a completed look. So for the first time, I sent my quilt top off to seek its fortune to be quilted on a long arm machine. Of course I used the services of my favorite shop, Quiltology, and look how wonderful the quilting turned out!
I did the backing in a turquoise Minkee, a very soft, fabric that I think is just perfect for any baby. I'd like to cuddle up in it myself really.
