Baby Quilt

I made a baby quilt for my friend Theresa's new baby boy Henry. A while back I bought a fat quarters kit with these awesome orange and blue and green fabrics. I loved the colors and knew it had to be mine.

I just started with a basic log cabin design using some of the fat quarters and my inspiration took flight from there! I headed out for some solid colors to tone it down and make it more "boy appropriate".

I am thrilled with the results!

I finished it just in time for my visit with Theresa on Sunday. We had a lovely visit and she even made cake! Yum! I was a spoiled guest :)

Here is Theresa and Henry looking lovely in their sunroom...

I love your quilt. Log cabin has to be my favorite, there are so many ways to work with it. I made these:

Looks amazing! What a lucky baby.

(I really love the pale blue fabric with leaves on it -- do you know what that is?)

OK, the quilt is lovely, but that baby is SO sweet! I'd say he's totally loving his new quilt. :)

Hey Jody!

Found your blog through Ravelry and just had to comment - my little one is a Henry, too! Glad to see another little Henry out there - he's adorable! And what a GORGEOUS quilt! Would you mind sharing where you got the kit - those colors are great! Thanks!
