    Chevron Baby Quilt...made by Charisma

    Well My pastor and his wife are having a baby boy...I couldn't just not make a baby quilt could I?

    I found this patten on the moda bake shop. I only made one section of it because it was to big for a baby quilt. I also liked it becuase their last name starts with a "W" and thsoe chevons looks like W's..so it was kind of perfect. LOL

    I wanted to write special messages in the quilting...and still make it pretty. I used minkee on the back so it would be extra snuggly.

    Thanks!

    That is so beautiful. The great thing about it is that she can use it many years well into adulthood and beyond. As always your quilting is awesome.

    This quilt manages to be both traditional and nontraditional, at the same time! It's wonderful, C!

    Beautifully simplistic design. I love how you put their last name in there. Clever.
