Baby Boy Nighttime Quilt

My cousin is having a little boy in the very near future (like any minute now — she may have even had him by the time this is posted). So I wanted to welcome him to the world with a little gift.

I used this starry night print to do a whole cloth quilt for him because it made me think of bedtime and snuggles.

For the quilting, I did a swirly design, like wind or clouds in the night sky. Of course it’s backed with minkee for maximum snuggle potential.

You can also see the quilt label I made for him using the embroidery function on my Bernina. Have I mentioned how awesome this machine is? Embroidery is so much easier it with it than my Husqvarna.

Close up of the swirls. The moons have a greenish tinge to them like there are celestial gases flowing over them and I found this green that matched perfectly and totally made the quilt pop. I love a contrasting binding! The quilting is also done in a bright green that blended nicely with the blue but still provided enough contrast to show the design.

Mom and Dad say they love it and I hope little Patrick does, too!
