baby Ingrid

A local woman contacted me on Monday asking if I could do a modern baby quilt for some special friends in time for a shower this weekend. Luckily, it's a mellow week for us. After chatting with her a bit, we decided to do a baby-sized version of my favorite quilt, Ingrid!

This was the original stack of fabrics. I added a few other shot cotton bits and a sweet white pindot.


And here is the completed top.


This has been SO MUCH FUN to make! I'll have it quilted up and ready for more photos on Friday.

(Oh, and I received a link to the professional photos from the marathon. After initially whining about my appearance (I imagined myself looking more buff and graceful, and it ends up I still have cheesy arms and feet that don't appear to lift off the ground), I remembered to be grateful for my healthy body. If you want to see proof that I actually did run the thing, here they are.)
