Pennant quilts are making me a bit of a one-trick pony. But this is a pony I’m okay with riding.
My most recent pennant quilt was made for my friend Amanda, who asked me to make something in red, coral, pink and aqua. I immediately remembered my hoard of my very favorite fabric line – Bliss by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I’ve used this fabric on casserole carriers, quilts, bibs, curtains and skirts. It feels both vintage and modern. It’s girly, but also classic. And I want to cover every space in my house with the color combo. Actually, when we found out I was pregnant, these were the fabrics that would have been all over a room for a little girl.
But since we were so lucky to get my little Henry-man, we went with navy instead. And the stash of this fabric remained in my fabric bins for future projects.
This is one of those future projects.
I hop that this quilt provides warmth, comfort and style for Amanda’s sweet baby girl, who arrived the same week that the quilt made it to her new home.
Happy weekend, friends!
