Safari Baby Beginnings

Thank you so much for all of your positive feedback on my Cross Strings block!! There has been some interest in a tutorial or a quilt along.  I think that sounds like a lot of FUN!  Let me see what I can come up.  : )

Today, I've got a new baby quilt in the works. The Mother-to-be likes purple and the nursery will have a safari theme.  My goal is to make a soft, happy quilt that will grow with the new baby.

I really like this print from Central Park by Kate Spain. I'm using the third one from the left. Purple? Check! Animals? Check! Fun, fresh color palette? Check!

Central Park by Kate Spain

I chose my colors based on the print.  I'm using mostly purples and yellow with a just hint of taupe and blue for balance. There is a variety of values within each color and I stayed away from anything too light since the animal print is on a white background. Add in a mix of scale and shapes and we're looking good. Aren't they pretty together?

The baby shower is coming up fast so I've got to run and cut.  Not at the same time silly!

  3. wonderful!! You have a great eye for color :)

  4. Love the fabrics/color choices....so sweet. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

  5. pretty pretty!! what pattern are you going with?

  6. I love your choices! I am excited to see the end result!

  7. Another baby quilt--have fun with it Adrianne! wonderful color palette:)

  8. Great fabric choices. I've developed a whole story about why the central park bricks are in the purple and taupe, but not the yellow. Buy me a drink and I might tell you.

  9. Great fabric choices. I have a very special mom-to-be friend who is decorating with a purple (college color) safari theme. I will have to use my central park scraps for something special for her. Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Love your choices!!! Can't wait to see more!
