And then breezy turned to gusty:
But in between gusts, I caught this relatively flat shot:
I will happily admit that I love how this turned out!
The original pattern from Kim Schaefer's Cozy Modern Quilts included an outer border slightly wider than the sashing, but I think I'm going to leave it off. I'm not usually a fan of square quilts, but I think that for a baby/toddler quilt, it's just fine--I usually prefer rectangle quilts so that both my feet and my chest/shoulders can be covered, but that shouldn't be an issue for a little guy for a while!
And since you really can't see the sashing print in the full quilt pictures, I took a few close-ups.
I admit my ulterior motive at these close-up photos--the quilt colors looked great on a 13-year-old piece of Ikea furniture that I repainted this weekend. Goodbye, dull, pale gray; hello, beautiful teal!
Now to decide on my May goal!
