Other projects included some baby quilts. The first is a quilt inspired by this adorable crocheted turtle cape and hat. The crocheted set were requested by the mom, but I had made her a quilt for her first baby ... so of course I had to make her another for her second! The greens and browns of the set inspired the baby quilt. A lack of turtle fabrics meant that I had to go with my old fabric standby for babies ... polka dots. Who doesn't love polka dots, I ask?
Here are the blocks before being put together ...
The second baby quilt is slightly whacked. Because we are pirates at my school, I wanted to go with a black/white/red pirate theme ... but because the dad is Mexican and the mom is my super trusty Spanish-speaking sub, I wanted to throw some calaveras in there as well. The result is what pirate-eating-calaveras would look like on crack ... I did throw in some reds on the last round of every other block to give *some* unity to the whole thing.
The mom will either love it ... or hide it.
