I finished this baby quilt a couple days ago, but between rain and Christmas, I’m just now getting the pictures posted. I’m going to star the post with a picture of the “Mama” quilt this was inspired by, the Paparazzi quilt designed by my friend Chris (pattern for sale here!).
I gave Paparazzi to one of my husband’s cousins (or 2nd cousin – families are hard!) for a wedding gift. Lo and behold, they announced a pregnancy shortly thereafter, so I knew that all those “waste” triangles from making Paparazzi would come in handy in a baby quilt for the same couple. So I present the Paparazetti baby quilt:
I threw a little more teal into the baby version than the original to tweak the color scheme just a bit. We know it’s a baby girl, so the colors worked out well.
Each block measures 6″ finished, so my waste triangles were some weird size unfinished since it’s a 4×4 block layout. Depending on the fabric placement, some blocks looks like spinwheels, and some look like throwing stars. What a super cozy theme for a baby quilt: dizziness and death. Hmm. At least the colors are pretty!
Once I can stomach going back to the post office after the holiday season, I’ll get it shipped off to the expectant couple.
