Modern quilts are truly a source of inspiration for me. In particular, I love how artists of this craft have taken a skillset of days gone by and modernized the look to appear more contemporary, without sacrificing any of the traditional attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Enter Lovey Dovey, an homage to my own children, who truly adored their “lovies”. This pattern comes in two sizes. The smaller of the two, 32.5” x 32.5”, is perfect for tucking a baby snuggly into a stroller or a crib. The larger is generously proportioned at 38.5” x 38.5” and will see your loved one well into his or her childhood. Either size is sure to become a treasured heirloom.
