take me out to the ball game - baby b's baby quilt

last month i was invited to a baby shower for a dear friend and fellow bridesmaid for melissa's wedding (and also one of my past brides that i photographed!) who is having her first baby this month.  sadly, i was unable to attend, due to my sister's wedding reception i suppose it was a valid reason to miss out on the baby themed fun!  i still wanted to make natalie and her little one on the way something special, and since the shower had a baseball theme to it i went with their favorite sports team.  natalie & marshall are big oakland a's fans, so it only felt fitting to use a's fabric for the quilt.  after a little pinterest search, i went with a simple but fun stripe pattern to tie in the coordinating colors and prints. i almost went for a solid print for the back, but a helpful joann's employee pointed out this fun baseball themed print. i also made a carseat canopy using this same print, with brown minky on the back :)
baby b should be making his appearance this month, and i cannot wait to see his little face!
congratulations again, natalie!
