Last Spring while trolling Instagram, I stumbled upon Caitlin Topham: the quilter and curator behind Salty Oat. Miracle of all miracles, she actually lived near me in North Carolina! Inspired by her gorgeous quilting and crisp modern embroidery, I reached out to her and we met up for coffee. If you mostly live with quilter's only via Instagram and the web, I cannot emphasize enough how amazing it is to spend time with quilty friends in person. We sipped lattes and chatted about fabric design and quilting. Both of us geeked out a bit, and nobody was bored or thought the other was odd!
Caitlin shared with me her current exploration of whole cloth quilts and then asked if I would be interested in designing a quilt for her. Of course, I said yes! And here is the result many months later. To read more about the design process and to check out the other curated whole cloth quilts in her series, head on over to the Salty Oat blog.
Backed in Carolyn Friedlander goodness and machine-bound to perfection, this modern gender-neutral baby quilt is the perfect gift for those modern expecting parents in your life.
