My friend Lynn was expecting her baby in April. But Baby Vincent decided to arrive early so this project became a rush job! I asked Lynn what color/ theme/style of quilt she would like for her sweet baby and she said she did not care so much about the style as long as it had something to do with California.
Lynn grew up in California and her parents still live here but she went off to NYU to Grad school about 10 years ago. I think she really enjoyed living in New York City for a number of years but as the time for parenthood grew near she realized she'd really like to be closer to her parents, And back in the Sunshine state!http://barristersblock.blogspot.com gave me this fabric a while back for my B-day! I thought the "Welcome to California" signs fit Lynn's request perfectly!
I used a wonderful fleece backing to make it extra squishy. The motif is a nod to the new babies dad who is of East Indian heritage.
It is really a simple construction, but when I make baby quilts I want them to be loved and cuddled and as I said Baby Vincent caught me (and his parents) by surprise!
Have a Great Weekend!
Cheers, Claire W.
