This 'You are My Sunshine' baby quilt was custom designed to show a geometric sun and its rays on a gray background. The suns rays are made of patchwork quilt shop quality cotton prints and batik. The lyrics ' You are my sunshine, my only sunshine; you make me happy, when skies are gray' are handpainted in a black acrylic in the gray sky. Each area of fabric in the sun is machine quilted with yellow thread in different geometric accents and wavy bubbles quilted with gray thread fill the gray sky. The sunshine spills out to the yellow/orange batik binding. The classic theme and modern design of this quilt make it perfect for any contemporary nursery, girl or boy.
The quilt measures approximately 41" x 50.5", 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 batik and various quilt shop quality cotton prints. The back is Andover/Makower UK Woodland Grasses in Grey fabric. The quilt was machine pieced, quilted, and 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. I am also happy to gift wrap your quilt and/or send it with a gift tag.
