Cross Baby Quilt

Please help Peter Rabbit (yes, I'm 36 and I have my Peter Rabbit, and no, I'm not giving it to the baby because it's mine!) and I welcome my cousin's little bub Jayden!!! My cousin Carrie was meant to have a little Christmas baby, but she didn't want to inflict that on her son (no offence to Christmas babies, but you have to admit it's a bit of a poo), so she decided to have him a little earlier. I love how that's something you can decide to do hehe

I'd asked Carrie what she wanted, and in her usual fashion, she said, "Oh make whatever... but umm, maybe if there's some blue even though it's boring but it IS a boy haha". I wrote that, and then realised you don't know Carrie. Dorkus.

I decided to make the little man a cross quilt out of DS fabrics and I think it's not particularly boyish, but at least it doesn't scream girl. I call that a win. The colours are always so cheery, and I love that for babies. Beautiful, saturated colours. Yum.

I used a grey dot for the binding and Kona Aqua for the backing. It's blue... ish? It's just a little baby quilt, and I really hope she likes it. My sister received the quilt a few days ago, so hopefully she'll take it to them when she visits soon! Utterly dying for pictures! :)

On a tangent, here's the view from the hub's study. I love the birch trees around the house. LOVE.

I hope Carrie and the little one are doing well, and his big sister Sophie gets to meet him soon :)

Love the fabric and the pattern-perfect baby quilt.

Very nice quilt, and I think the colors are great for a boy, blue but not so typical boring baby blue.
Greetings from Germany!

Beautiful quilt, as always! Where do you get your quilt lables from? I am so very lazy and don't feel like pouring over a million and one labels making companies. I figure whomever you use for your awesome lovliness is good for you, will be good for me!

Thank you and have a great day!

I love when baby quilts have saturated colors. Something about babies seeing dark and light values better? Very scientific there :) Looks great!
