At the beginning of April I am going to become a sort of aunt as my boyfriends sister is having a baby boy. This has provided me with the perfect excuse to create. First up, a crib quilt. I used this design on Moda Bake Shop as the starting point and the 10 Little Things fabric line also by Moda for most the fabrics. I then picked a few coordinating child friendly prints from my stash to complete it.
The first blocks:
As you can see I still hadn’t quite got it right at this point!
I chose to use a dark grey for sashing as I thought it would show up marks less than white or cream and then added another border of a grey truck and car print. I decided to also do a pieced back to make a truly reversible quilt.
Quilting in progress:
I quilted in the ditch on the front of the quilt and used a blue variegated thread on the back to add interest.
The finished front:
And the back:
Finished size 33″x41″. All ready to wrap up and give away.
