One Bright Abstract Baby Quilt

My mom is an amazing artist! And so today I’m announcing a new category—Darlene Made It—to showcase some of her work.

So for starters, don’t you just love this baby quilt she designed for Great-Grandchild Number Eight?

One Bright Abstract Baby Quilt on JanMadeIt

It’s all triangles that she pieced together into this beautiful bright abstract.

My mom doesn’t do abstract. But she should do it more often. This is absolutely gorgeous.

She’s hand quilting it with criss-cross diagonal lines and she’ll seal up the edges with some equally beautiful trim when that’s done.

She plans to finish by Christmas so she can come up with something for Great-Grandchild Number Nine.

Stay tuned. I’ll be showcasing a half-dozen or more quilts she’s recently completed.

    The fact that the quilt is beyond words… that’s obvious. Any chance for some close ups? 🙂

      Thanks Dominique, Yes, my mom is amazing! I will get some closeups next time I’m at her house. I also plan to reshoot it wrapped around Owen when he gets it for Christmas. And I’m going to quiz her more on how she put it together. She’s been working on it for awhile. Number 9 is Owen’s brand new little sister!
