As a professional machine quilter/ quilt whisperer in my day job, one of my perks is I see alot of quilts. My favorite baby quilt pattern (which is good because I’ve quilted LOTS of these) is this one with a 3-D pinwheel.
99% of baby quilts seem to be more “girly” than boyish. Boy quilts require you to consider the theme of the quilt- which in this case was a ranch/cowboy theme. I decided that the pinwheels were instead windmills on a ranch (with a windy sky) and barbed wire in the lattice.
Thanks to Carol Kimball for the barbed wire quilting inspiration. You helped me out as my “quilt whisperer” skills were rusty today (ok, bad pun).
Next up is a baby sail boat quilt. Hmmm….. I’m tempted to quilt a “Jaws” theme, but I might get in trouble! LOL
One day, I will share some of the weirdest stuff I have ever quilted in a quilt. Warning…it’s pretty weird- hahahaha!
