Colors of the Seashore: Baby Quilt for Great Niece

A baby girl was born to our nephew this month. They named her Scarlet. I made a baby quilt not knowing if the baby would be a boy or a girl (they didn't want to know in advance), so since they live in California, I decided to make a quilt in the colors of the ocean, and I named the quilt, Colors of the Seashore. I used aqua, blues, greens and sand colors. I backed it in a flannel of aqua with white peace signs. Truly a California quilt. I am still a California hippie girl myself, lol!

Welcome Scarlet. I hope to someday meet you. I hope you will enjoy being cuddled in your quilt.

Made using scraps that I had in these colors.

I quilted it in a simple diagonal grid.

Flannel backing with peace signs.

  1. I’ll bet I even saw you back in the day. You Hippies sure were a crazy looking bunch to a young teenager in her early teens! But I loved the flower power craze. I had large colorful flowers on everything. Yes, and the peace sign too. Love the colors of your quilt. A sand and surf color scheme was a good decision.
