Sunburst baby quilt

You can find Part 1 of my instructions on how to make this quilt here.

A new baby quilt top is finished...



The colors and pattern were inspired by these photos of the deck chairs at Universtity of Wisconsin - Madison...


The new mom is a big fan of these chairs and their sunburst patterns! The baby girl's nursery colors were chosen based on a gallery photo of these chairs, with chocolate brown accents added.


The quilt pattern was inspired by this fabulous quilt by Geta Grama. It just so happened that I was admiring this unique quilt when my husband asked me to make a baby quilt for his co-worker Jeremy (and wife Jill) who were expecting their first child. Jill directed me to the photos of these chairs as a color guide, and this pattern seemed a perfect fit :)

Serendipity. I just love that word.

P.S. Check back next week for more details on size and construction.

  3. This is STUNNING! Love the dark-tipped spokes.
    Ordinarily I'd say this is "not my kind of thing", but looking at this (and the inspiration quilt, thanks for linking to it) I just might have to add it to the BucketList.

  13. Love the Sunburst baby quilt. I just finished making one myself using white background and hand dyed fabrics for the sunbursts. I made 16 so the quilt is a little bigger. I have several friends who love this also and we are going to get together and have a "class" at my house so we can each make one. I will send pictures when this happens. Thanks for the great directions. You made it all come together very easily.
