A new modern boy pattern and a giveaway...!

This is a story of Little Baby Brother Buddy Dude.  Seriously, do you love him? Do you want to bite his cheeks?  From the very bottom of my heart I really didn't think I was missing anything by not having a son. My four daughters filled my heart. I thought a boy would just be for my husband. I knew I would love one, but absolutely did not know how much I would adore him!


He came into our lives 1 year ago. He reminds me of Big Baby on toy story. He is giant. 98% height. Super bald. And pure perfection! Finally getting a boy meant tons of new decorating options...which brings me to this quilt...


I named this quilt "Mod Tweet",  sort of the modern "Sweet Tweet". (My original pattern that has been very good for our little business...)  Anyhow, when I thought to decorate a boys room I didn't want to do the blue and brown thing. I feel like I have done that, and I wanted to different than what was being done in most boy nursery's. So I thought and thought and finally came up with gray and aqua. I LOVE how this quilt turned out. Within a month I will be posting this guys nursery over at our FRESH POPPY blog, and it is darling!

Plus, check the minky backing. Have you seen anything so magnificent? L-O-V-E !

I went back and forth about making it a pattern or keeping it original for my baby. In the end I sold him out for a little extra cash...(that is the kind of person I am...)  So here you have it...

Not only do I love this Mod Tweet but I love the fabrics you used. Any chance there will be a kit?

Beth said...

Oh, what a cute baby! He is so adorable he almost distracted me from this quilt, which is definitely my favorite. I can imagine making this in somewhat stronger colors and hanging it in our living room.

Thanks for the chance to win this pattern, which would be just the impetus I would need to get started on a new project.

Wow, those colors are so fresh and well, as the pattern name indicates, modern (lol). Big Baby Boy is so cute. For the baldness, start shaving what little fuzz he has on his head with the clippers and it will start growing in really well. Seriously. Beautiful quilt!

I love the quilt, but BBBLBBD almost steals the show! They're both seriously cute!

Love the gray and aqua together, that might be a new favorite color combo!
