Now for my blast of color. Some very great friends of ours are expecting their first baby in July. They are expats, living in Chile now and I think appreciate the unconvential and funky. I'm a batik FAH-REAK. I just love the vibrancy of the fabrics. So I decided to make them a batik baby quilt. Enough with this wishy-washy pastels or cutesy prints. Let the baby bask in some color!
But now I'm second guessing myself. I put together a bit of the quilt (a tossed nine-patch pattern) and I'm worried they are going to get this and think "this is the ugliest baby quilt I've ever seen!"......sigh.....
Is it too "out there" for a baby quilt? I look at it and love it and then look at it again and question if they will love it. So it goes with anything creative, right? Please keep in mind I am not a professional quilter. I've made a couple of small quilts in the past but it's not my area of expertise. I still like doing it though!
Thoughts? Please be honest.
