Star Bright Baby Quilt // Works in Progress

A quick snapshot of a baby quilt I’m working on for a new nephew–I promised my sister in law I would send it before he turns 1. Ha!  Baby quilts are my favorite, for sure.

Our adventure for the week (at least one of them) happened last night,  when, for possibly the only time in my life, I was a VIP. We joined a friend in his front row box seats for the Washington Kastles, a local summer league tennis team. My six-year-old has a new found love for tennis, and he sat quietly and attentively for over three hours, watching (really, really good) tennis. It pays to be a cute kid in the front row–he got a tennis ball, not 1 but 2 t-shirts (which he got signed by all of the players from both teams!), a racquet, and at one point Anastasia Rodionova was frustrated, came over and pretended to give him her racquet, and asked if he wanted to try. I think he might have developed a bit of a crush on her last night!  The weather was perfect and it was just lovely!

    Love this quilt, Katie! Simple, but very striking.

    Man, you could’ve reached out and touched Roddick! I suppose security would frown upon that…

    That’s a gorgeous quilt and perhaps a nice introduction to HST blocks for me (I’m a chicken lol). I might try one for 100 Quilts for kids :)

      It is a great introduction to HSTs–only a few of them!! I’m putting together a quick free pattern as part of 100 Quilts, actually. I’m so glad you liked it!
