Central Park Quilt Top


I feel like it's been forever since I've actually completed something!  Albeit that this is only the top of a quilt, but I'm considering it a completion.  I was able to get my Central Park baby quilt pieced together this weekend, and while its a very very simple layout, I really like how it shows off the fabrics against the crisp white blocks.


Now of course, the baby I had in mind when making this, we found out this weekend is a boy and not a girl!  Oh well, we still have one other couple we know who is pregant who hasn't found out yet what the baby will be.  Maybe a girl??


My first thought was that the fabrics from the Central Park line would only really work for a girl quilt,  but when I really started looking, I think I can make it work for a boy too...I have a new pile of fabrics which will hopefully be cut into soon for a boy quilt using alot of the blue, green and orange colorways as well as mixing in the animal prints.  I pulled a few other blue prints from my stash to give the pile an extra punch of "boy", and really like where this second baby quilt is headed. 


Back to the quilt at hand, the top measures 40 inches square, and am putting aside to quilt in the near future. 

I will be linking this post to Sew Modern Monday hosted by Megan over at Canoe Ridge Creations.  Be sure to stop over and check out all the great projects!
