Grandma Quilt for Valerie

I just learned that someone we see a couple times a year when we stay at the beach just became a grandma. Every grandma needs a baby quilt, right? Especially someone as nice as Valerie.

DH actually spoke with her, and he didn't ask if the baby is a boy or a girl. But she lives at the beach, so I can do something tropical and gender neutral.  Here's the palette I pulled from my stash, soft midtones in yellow, green, and orange, which I'll combine with a white on white.

A few of these:
The colors are truer in this photo

No, this will not be a repeat of the flying geese quilt I recently made in coral, raspberry, and plum.

A few of these are added in:

Maybe I can get the top together this week.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our week at the beach which had been scheduled for next week, so I don't know when I'll see Valerie again. I'll mail the quilt to her. She doesn't read my blog so I don't have to worry about posting about her quilt.

  1. What a thoughtful gift for Valerie. A Grandma Quilt to keep at her house for when the baby visits? Brilliant!

  2. Great colors for a beach baby (or beach grandma quilt). I hope you have a fun time putting the quilt top together this week.

  3. Beautiful start to what I'm sure will be a lovely and cherished gift! How sweet of you! :)

  4. Sorry you had to miss your beach trip, but working with those nice beachy colors was a nice diversion.

  5. What a kind gift! I'm sure she'll really appreciate it.

  6. Those are very soft pretty colors, I'd say perfect for a beach baby;) It should help brighten the new Gmas day when it arrives.
