Baby Quinn's Quilt

A few months ago my mom requested a quilt for a baby boy. The quilt is done, the baby is born, and I am finally getting around to posting a few photos! I'll share the best photo first...
Welcome to this beautiful world, Quinn William! His mom, Heather, says he is lovin' his quilt!
The special part about this quilt, besides who it was for, is that my mom and I planned it out together. I would snap photos of fabrics that caught my eye at the quilt shops, text them to my mom and we would discuss our ideas. Video chatting is super helpful because it allows her to give me feedback and it's easy for her to see the fabric on my design wall.  I have to stop and appreciate that technology allows us to share these experiences. Of course, you can't touch the fabric when you video chat. It's like watching the food channel; the dish looks so delicious but you can't taste it! When mom received the quilt in the mail, I think her exact words were, "Oh, it's so beautiful and soft in person!"
The backside is a cozy minky fabric. Although you have to pin the quilt sandwich twice as much (at least from my experience that helps keep the fabric from shifting), I think it is a perfect choice for a sweet little baby!
I quilted soft wavy lines on my home machine and chose fabric with green and white stripes for the binding.

Can't wait for the next baby quilt! Who's having a baby?!
