Flights of Fancy Baby Quilt

A bright and cheery welcome for a new baby.
The baby quilt is finished and has been sent off to welcome the first child of a new generation.

Vibrant, cheerful colours take centre stage against a crisp, white background fabric. (See more on colour in my post dated Nov. 13, 2011.)

The design of this baby quilt was made using only one block pattern. My husband and I collaberated on the design of the block, which is based on a fibonacci series (1,1,2,3,5). As in most traditional block patterns, this block can be rotated, flipped and combined in a variety of designs. Here, I manipulated the blocks to create scoops of ice-cream and butterfly wings. (See more on construction in my post dated Dec. 3,2011)

The ice cream cone in the bottom right hand corner on the back of the quilt has a little inscription for the new baby.
