    Angry Cute Modern Baby Quilt, hubby thinks it's weird!

    Ok, my first time posting a pic of my quilts, but I think this came out super cute. My hubby thinks the black and white looks weird. I think He's crazy. I would LOVE this quilt for me if I was a baby! The quilt looks loppy on bottom because the wind was blowing hard so it wouldn't just hang down.

    I think by the time the baby is older and sitting on it playing with her barbie dolls it will look just fine.

    Husbands are trainable. Mine went from "whadaumean wots wrong wid it!!!!" (said in painic)... and now he says "I like it, but the upper right hand corner doesn't have the energy of the rest," or "too many colors over there," or why not extend that curvyness clear across the quilt?" You just need to train him!

    The eye doc says my DH is color blind in most colors, but when we are talking quilts he comes up with incredible suggestions! I used to send pictures thru email to one daughter or the other, and she would offer suggestions. Haven't done that in years now! Perhaps the fact that I like bold colors might be why he can "see" the problems so well. Keep working with your love and he may decide to relax and look too.

    One of the first baby quilts I made was little neon figures on a black background. When her mom held the 4 month old so she could see it for the first time, hanging on the design wall, that baby was totally mesmerized! Kept staring at it, moving her eyes back and forth, finally reaching out to touch it and smiling.....lands, she stole my heart!!! Babies KNOW!

    It IS super cute and I think the black and white add so much. Has a little bit of a Mary Engelbreit feel.

    The bright colors and checkerboard will be great for the baby's eyes and imagination. Good job!

    Babies see black and white when they are firstborn. So it will be as much eye candy for them as it is to me. I love it. The black and white makes it pop. Othetwise it would be not as stunning.

    Another thought! Is used to be the thing to do to have all baby stuff very light pastel and w/o things that might distract them from......??? growing, sleeping, ???? But now the "in" thing is brightness and fun with all sorts of things to be "discovered" and even played with/fantasize about. Perhaps someone who doesn't "like" the quilt is thinking as we all did in yesteryear.

    Your hubby just happens to be wrong about this. It is not weird at all and any baby would love this quilt. I have learned when it comes to what hubby thinks you just kind of ignore and go on!! It is a very cute quilt and the colors are great. Even the black!!

    Smile Thank You all! :)

    Linda,

    That is funny! Of course you all are right, sometimes you just need to hear it from fellow quilters. Pastels are just not my style, I wanted a quilt for a little girl that would last over different years, not just new born.

    Bold colors are easier for baby's eyes to see. Your hubby is wrong. Your quilt is adorable!
