Chevron Baby Quilt
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...

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!ReplyDelete
Its beautiful! I've been collecting low volume fabric so that I can make myself a quilt. I just love the look. And like you said, I like it against the kona white.ReplyDelete
Absolutely adorable! Love the mix of prints you used!ReplyDelete
