Jacqueline from BIND shared this Stripey Quilt for a Baby to Boy with us. We love the stripes, don’t you?!

From Jacqueline:
This quilt came about when a dear friend told me that she was expecting a baby boy. I had in mind a baby-to-boy quilt. I wanted the quilt to feel cheerful and playful– masculine with a touch of softness– and modern. So, I had selected a mixture of stripe fabrics of different color tones with some simple blue and white clown stripe fabrics against a solid white fabric. I felt that the selection of stripe fabrics together with a hour-glass block design, randomly flickered around the quilt suited the idea of a transitional quilt and the aspiration behind it. I have also continued this ‘flickering’ at the back of the quilt, just to add some cheekiness to it.
