Modern Baby, the sweet new book from That Patchwork Place just arrived. This book is full of great baby quilt ideas for the modern quilter, and the modern baby. Quilts with a bit more punch to stimulate the baby's senses. Today, Dana of Old Red Barn Co, Melissa of Happy Quilting Melissa, and Amy of Diary of a Quilter are here to tell us a bit more about their contributions to the book, which is packed full of patterns by a bevy of talented bloggers.
Hello! I am Melissa of Happy Quilting Melissa and my contribution to Modern Baby is titled "Daddy’s Little Girl". I have three little girls that have Daddy totally wrapped around their little fingers. Hence, the inspiration for the zig-zag that wraps up the quilt. I added an ombre-esque background moving from black to white to bring lots of modern flair, and combined with the quilting (which I did myself!), the little wrapped zig-zags really pop! And the final touch was the adorable tiny applique that references those little cuties that inspired the creation from the start.
