This messy stack of fabric has quickly turned into this super simple, yet sweet baby quilt, in what seems like overnight.
In all of the quilts that I have made, I have never put together a simple square patchwork quilt, and I thought with the amount of different fabrics I wanted to use, this simple design would fit the bill.
I started this quilt using only yellows, greens and oranges with a touch of grey because I needed it to be gender neutral, but on my design wall it just looked sort of blah. I decided to add a few pops of red with some of my white/red fabrics, which helped the "blah"ness slightly, and on a whim tossed in a few aqua prints which I think really make the quilt and give it life.
This quilt has some of my favorite fun prints, and a few of my absolute last scraps that I could find in my stash, like that little square of Tufted Tweets Birds on Dot, and of course the green chairs. Just enough fun a whimsy for a pretty gender neutral baby quilt.
As this weekend is the hubby's weekend to work, that means I get the entire weekend to sew! On the agenda is getting this little guy basted and quilted. I've been wanting to try out Bertha's walking foot, so I'm thinking some simple straight line quilting following the seams will do.
What are you sewing this weekend?
