A Quilt for Cupcake

Just a few little peaks of a quilt started, put aside, and now emerging at the front of my list of projects to finish for a friend's new arrival.





Throughout the pregnancy, the parent's referred to their wee one as cupcake.
I hope to have the quilt finished in time for the baby naming in a week and a half. Until then it will be Cupcake's Quilt.

Looks great! FYI, I have a project I've been keeping under wraps because I've not seen anyone else do what I'm doing . . . until tonight. I made up this plan to make rings from pentagons. Where did you get your idea?

I am guessing these are LARGE blocks. I love the look of a really large block with very very interesting fabrics in the mix. Somehow they look more contemporary than the teeny pieced things of the past.

I really like the subtle grey/white circular dying in the center of the "flower." It gives it dimentionality and complexity.

That is lovely. I always feel that large images are easier for babies to focus on and enjoy. At least, that is what I operated on when I made my quilt for my son.
I love the fabrics and the placement. Little "Cupcake" will treasure this quilt for her whole life.

Really love the addition of the plains to this one Malka, it really adds to the excitement and boldness. Can't wait to see it finished :)

I love cupcake as a new baby nickname. I've heard some good ones(gus-gus, festus, fluffy...) but that's just lovely! And the quilt blocks really fit, don't they!

I love when a name/design come together so perfectly.

That is beautiful, and your friend (and her baby!) will adore it. I've never tried quilting, but I think they are gorgeous.

Color again. I think I am going to have to stop reading you. I feel so - unproductive - when I hold myself up to my image of you. Drat. Surely I did SOMETHING cool today.
