modern quilt, baby quilt, modern baby quilt!

Things are slowing down a bit here at Wazoo. We still have plenty of work to do, but the calls for 'hurry-up' quilting have stopped. I was surprised to see we used up three rolls of 30 yards of batting from March first to today!! Wow! That doesn't include the packaged batting we used or customer provided batting. There are many quilts done by Wazoo going to new homes this Spring, for sure.
I did a modern quilt a few days ago that almost boggled me. This modern stuff is fairly new to us, and I am still learning what looks best on them. Mr Wazoo had a more traditional baby quilt, very soft with flannel and baby animals. Then I quilted a baby quilt I made at my last retreat for a friend of my twin daughters who just had her first baby. I made it from more modern fabrics and with a geometric type pattern. I used a variation of the Baptist fan that has that modern look to it. So, a little traditional mixed with the new style. We may be geezers here, but we do keep in step with what's happening in the world of quilting...did I mention that I love my job?!
