A Baby, A Quilt, and Loads of Love

A Baby, A Quilt, and Loads of Love

In July, some dear friends of ours celebrated the birth of their first child, Claire.


To help them celebrate, we did what any letterpress-loving souls would do. We printed their announcements! But before we get to those, I thought we could take a day and revel in the beautiful photographs that Shea Halliburton took of little Claire.


And the quilt! Oh, how we love that quilt. We had it made especially for Claire by Katie Bowlby, another friend who happens to be exceptionally talented. The patterned fabrics are hand-printed by Maze and Vale, one of my favorite fabric designers. Katie and I worked together to develop a design and color palette that we thought Claire and her parents would like (Claire’s gender was a surprise, so the quilt needed to be gender neutral). We were thrilled with the results.

claireThis little girl is going to be mighty spoiled, you guys.

Stay tuned for pictures of the baby announcements we designed just for Claire!
