Chevron Baby Quilt

Modern Organic Chevron Baby Boy Quilt by Fabric Mutt

This little baby quilt was an absolute dream to make.

The pattern is simple to piece and quick to sew. I love the modern feel it has, even with the children's prints. You'll recognize my Bells & Whistles fabric audition from the other day with a few changes. I almost never finish a project using exactly the same fabrics I pull at the start. About half of these fabrics are organic, and I really appreciate the slightly muted colors which, for me anyway, also adds to the modern vibe. I enjoyed using the mix of low volume prints along with Kona white for the background. The binding is a typewriter key print from Type by Julia Rothman -- a fun take on an alphabet print -- and the backing is the yellow print in the center block which I picked up at the local Hobby Lobby. It was in the clearance section at a great price, and I just couldn't refuse.

I'll be handing this quilt off to my parents to deliver tomorrow morning to the expectant family, and I have to admit, it's going to be hard to say goodbye to this one. I might just need to make another for myself using some grown-up prints...

  3. It is absolutely gorgeous! I love the pattern. I bought the same fabric you used for the backing a while ago at Hobby Lobby, and I paid full price :( but I still love it.

  14. Super, super cute. I can totally see a little boy dragging this everywhere. It's almost an I-spy quilt, with all of the detailed novelty prints you've included. Now I want to make one too!
