News: Whole Cloth Quilt

Rainbow Baby Quilts

Baby with Rainbow Quilt

A client custom ordered a whole cloth modern baby quilt for each of her girls to take to pre-school. She wanted one side to be “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and the other side to be “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” For her girly girl, we went with pink. And for the more wild sister: purple.

For “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, we used a rainbow themed fabric. The pink rainbows have gold (of course) and mini repeating rainbows, while the purple rainbows are much larger.   And “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” uses the same celestial fabric for each quilt, one in pink and the other in grey.

Both quilts were hand bound with a coordinating striped fabric.

And of course, we had to use a diamond pattern to quilt these 40” x 45” quilts together. We naturally used pink and purple cotton thread, respectively.

Starting pre-school can be scary and intimidating. Hopefully these soft, sweet rainbow and star quilts bring a little comfort in those first few days. We can’t wait to see the girls snuggling with their handmade baby quilts.
