the first in this year's parade of baby quilts

summer chevron

I think the herringbone design has become my go-to baby quilt pattern when I need to make something for friends but find myself overthinking what to make and under a deadline (the baby's due date). It's a no-brainer. And it's fun, clean, modern-looking, and easily integrates into most nurseries. I know these particular friends are designers (furniture and graphic design, specifically) who lean toward a more modern aesthetic. I'm pretty sure this will fit right into their home and hopefully be much used and loved.

Also, talk about getting in just under the wire - their beautiful baby boy was born just a couple of days after Matt delivered the quilt to them.

This is lovely. I am hoping to make my first baby quilt this year, but I need to get off my butt and do the cutting, by far my hardest part!
