Iris Ann’s Baby Quilt July OMG
We are making a baby quilt for a coworker whose niece is expecting her first baby in September. The baby is a girl and they are expecting to name her Iris Ann. To say we are thrilled and happy to be making a baby quilt for Iris Ann following the specifics set forth by her mom is an understatement. We are making this our July One Monthly Goal (OMG) to share on Patty’s Elm Street Quilts linky party.
Iris Ann’s HRT
Sue and I debated the dynamics of Iris’ quilt for a good month or longer. Some days I thought it was block composed of 60-degree triangles, while on other days I was certain the blocks were made from half-rectangle-triangles (HRTs). At one point, we had to decide and stick with the decision. HRTs it is.
The color palette mom decided on is white, cream, black, pink, and two shades of grey. We’ll hopefully be cutting and starting to sew them this week. It warms our heart to think of baby Iris laying and sleeping underneath our love. One additional fun point for me is making HRTs. I have wanted to make a quilt using that block for ages. Plus, I have some new Bloc-Loc rulers that are begging to be used.
Iris July OMG Project
To recap, our July OMG project is to design, sew, quilt and bind a baby quilt for my coworker’s great-niece, Iris Ann.
