This is the quilt that I made for my friend Kellie's new little baby boy, Liam Parker. This is a pretty big departure from my usual fabric choices, but I thought the teal, maroon, and mustard color combo was interesting and unusual for a boy and I hoped little Liam would one day appreciate the quirky robot theme.
The fabric is Cogsmo by Cosmo Cricket for Andover Fabrics. I love all the prints together and with the stripey binding and circuit board printed backing, the whole thing ended up looking pretty adorable for a little boy. However, this quilt has a bunch of little mistakes that are driving me crazy. In planning the design, I didn't consider size, so this quilt is huge for a baby. Huge. Also, for some reason, I didn't have enough pins to baste this (huge) quilt properly (where are all my pins?), but instead of spending the few dollars for another pack, I forged ahead. So this is pretty much the worst machine quilting I've ever done. I opted for minimal quilting lines, outlining the squares. But the whole thing was quite shifty, so there are puckers all over the place, making the whole quilt rather... wonky.
Hopefully, sweet baby Liam won't mind. Congratulations, Kellie and Chris!
PS: Liam's quilt is draped over Juni's new play tent. My brother and I put it together one morning while she was at school using this tutorial. It is the perfect spot for afternoon reading, pretend camping, and impromtu popcorn parties.
