Ombre baby quilt

I made a baby quilt for one of Anna’s friends from chorus. I used inspiration from Pinterest, this post in particular. But I got a bit carried away with how many colours I wanted it to go through, so I added a scrambled colour border on the sides only.

Mochi has been very interested in this quilt from the start, see?

I’ve been pretty obsessed with applique ideas off pinterest, Anna requested whales and starfish and I really like the way they came out. (Detail photos below.)

Best photo of cat and quilt but there is also this one of her trying to catch my needle and thread as I hand sew on my lap.

The backing is blue panda bun fabric that Theresa gave me, and it looks super cute on the back. The colours all just mesh together nicely, and the dark blue binding pulls it together.

Whaley and starfishy.
