Another striped baby quilt! Clearly I’m loving this pattern these days. And in all honesty I’m working out kinks in the “pattern” with each version that I test, so I’m starting to finally feel like the concept is a real thing.
This quilt is for our friends, Colleen & Ben, and their new baby, Ian. Ian has already turned out to be a very patient baby. He was born in December and I saw Colleen last week to give her the quilt. Definitely not a commentary on my excitement over his arrival - more like a commentary on how busy life has been.
Colleen & Ben had a monkey theme going for Ian’s nursery and I found the cute fabric for the back at JoAnn’s.
I loved the fabric, and then started second guessing it thinking that maybe it was too busy. But when I added in the stripes as part of the back I fell in love with the fabric again.
Fun fact about the stripes on the backing - they were the leftover pieces from the front stripes when I went to square everything up. It was a bit of a happy accident that everything worked out so well.
