This baby quilt is destined for a new little miss, born last Tuesday. As she came early, and I didn't know the sex beforehand, I hadn't really planned for this project and therefore needed a quickie. This proved to be just that - with cutting started on Wednesday and binding finished early Monday morning. Gotta love that turn-around!
I'm also pleased to
The finished quilt measures about 36" x 36". Perfect size for bub - and it helped make the whole process even quicker as a pieced back was not necessary. Now we're talking.
I absolutely love this funky print - and actually let it dictate the whole palette for the quilt, minus the yellow.
For the binding I originally imagined dark purple (Kona Mulberry, to be precise) but as I didn't have enough, I made do with a dark pink with just a hint of mulberry.
I have to admit, I actually love it. Hopefully the mum (who is a purple lover like myself) agrees.
The quilting was based on this quilt, the obvious inspiration for the whole project. You know the saying, if it ain't broke...
Basically, it consists of straight-lines, quilted in a random pattern (or "crazy lines"), just like I did here. Let me assure you, this method also ticked the "quick" box! For a bit of added extra I used a variegated thread in pinks, blues and purples.
So there we have it... a geometric-inspired baby quilt in less than a week!
How's that for challenge accepted? ;)
