Sweet Cream Dream

By Seamssewcreative
This quilt is going to a girlfriend whose favorite color is cream. She is due just weeks after me, and the gender is a surprise.
I hope she likes the colors I chose. Even if they decide to go with blues or pinks for the nursery in the end, I know this quilt will look great in her living room.
Here are some photos of the quilt in various stages...

My quilting, an attempt at straight lines, but I'm still figuring out my walking foot...
Sweet Cream Dream
Yes, satin blanket binding.
Un-traditional, but then so is the super soft chenille back.
I thought it was baby appropriate. :)

All done!
Sweet Cream DreamAmazingly I am not finishing this one the night before the baby shower (its in December!) In this specific instance it would have been disastrous, considering her shower is just days after my due date :) I think I'm going to try my hand at embroidering the label for this quilt.
Hope you like it! I really loved the muted colors, but working with all of these soft, earthy tones has me wanting to do something really bright next, like this... Bring on the solids!
Happy sewing,
