It’s gotten to that lovely time in our lives where all our friends are busy joining the parental club. The newest member, is a charming little boy, Hugo (gorgeous name right?).
This quilt was assembled from a gender neutral jelly roll, as the gender of the bub was unknown, and also to have something nice and bright for bub to roll around and look at.
The quilting was done by machine, with a variegated thread in straight lines. This way it’s easily machine washable (key feature of baby quilts) and still nice and soft. I find sometimes heavy machine quilting creates a very stiff quilt, which isn’t ideal for maximum snuggle factor.
The backing is from my stash!!!! The stashbusting challenge has been going slowly, but this was one of my prouder moments finding a use for this fabric. It’s been in the stash for at least 3 years, and it was just perfect for the quilt top.
Now time to wrap it up, and exchange the gift for cuddles!
