Bright Baby Quilt

I'm finally getting around to posting about quilts that I've finished in 2020, and my goal is to post about all of them by the end of the year.

This is a baby quilt that I finished in January 2020 for a new addition on my husband's side of the family. When I was deciding on a design, I was told that the mother liked sunflowers and that the family raises bees, so I found the perfect backing fabric first and then worked on a pattern for the front. I found a few inspiration ideas for a sunflower block on Pinterest and drafted my own layout for the one I liked best. The assorted white on white, yellows, and striped binding fabric were all from my stash, but I did have to buy the green and brown.

The parents sent me an adorable photo of the quilt's owner with his quilt, so I think they like it!
