Addison's Baby Quilt- Rainbow Hexies

My dear friend Meredith had her second daughter in late November and named her Addison. In honor of her arrival I made this Random Rainbow Hexagon Baby quilt for sweet little Addi. 

 Meredith and her family always decorate with lots of color, so I thought using all of the colors of the rainbow in this quilt would be appropriate for their newest addition.

I recently learned how to paper piece Hexagons (Hexies) and love that you can work on them not behind the sewing machine, but while relaxing on the couch with a guilty pleasure reality show on the TV. :)

 A is for Addi!

Photo shoot outside our apartment in Santa Monica - taken on Christmas Day - which obviously was beautiful!

Addi's quilt made it safe and sound to the Cooper's new home up north in Los Gatos last week, and I hope she and her big sister Mikayla enjoy snuggling under it!

PS - Happy 2012 everyone. Here is to a great year of quilting on this blog and other good stuff too :)!
