This 'You are My Sunshine' baby quilt was custom designed to show a geometric sun and its rays on blue/gray background. The lyrics ' You are my sunshine, my only sunshine; you make me happy, when skies are gray' are hand painted in a slate gray matte acrylic on the sun's rays. The yellow big stitch quilting accents the geometric lines and the feeling of sun rays. Gray clouds are subtly big stitch quilted in the blue print sky space. The classic theme and modern design of this quilt make it perfect for any contemporary nursery, girl or boy.
The quilt measures approximately 36" x 51.5", and is the perfect size for playing with your little one on the floor or for a crib or toddler bed. The front of the quilt was hand cut from Kona cotton and Kaufman print. The back is a Rebecca Jones for Clothworks fabric. The quilt was machine pieced, hand big stitch quilted, and hand bound. The 80% cotton, 20% polyester batting was specifically chosen because it allows the quilt to keep its original modern look without the pucker associated with 100% cotton batting. Machine wash on gentle cold; because of the lettering, it is best if the quilt is line/air dried. It will get softer and softer with each wash. Your quilt will arrive pre-washed with Dreft.
