Made this baby quilt as a surprise for a dear friend earlier this spring. She and her husband wanted the gender to be a surprise, so I tried to keep it gender neutral. I’ve been playing with a few designs that are a bit more modern, and this project seemed to fit perfectly. The black and white stripes were totally inspired by an Ikea Stockholm rug that I’ve been coveting for my living room for months, but am too cheap to buy. I also found a Marimekko black and white onesie on a Vermont Trip this past winter that coordinates very nicely.
Without further ado, I give you loads of pictures!
I was home for Easter when these pictures were taken, so I had some help. Thanks Mom! Had a lot of fun taking these around my family’s house.
Oh, and his big brother also got this really cool super hero cape:
The tutorial can be found at The Pleated Poppy.
And finally, congrats to Krista and Bob, who were blessed with a sweet baby boy, Arden, this past weekend! He is adorable, hope he looks good in black and white!
