Organic Baby Quilt


This is my first time using organic cotton fabric and I loved it!


And how could you not love it when you are looking at this wonderful design by Teagan White for Birch Fabrics.  Her artwork is really sweet and she has her own website where you can buy prints and such too.  I really like her subdued color palate and kind of old fashioned looking themes.


This quilt went together really quickly because I used a whole piece of the hexagon print for the top.  Then I free-motion quilted it in a loopy design that makes me think of how the fireflies on the back might be zipping around.


I decided to wash this one to see how the organic fabric shrinks up.  Well, as you can see it puckers up just beautifully.  In fact, I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and supple this quilt came out of the dryer.  


The binding is the same fabric as the back and like usual machine stitched on.

I had a bit of extra fabric so I went ahead and did up a set of burp cloths too.  Both the quilt and the burp cloth set are available in my etsy shop.


They look cute all bundled up.


As much as I like this organic fabric, and I mostly bought it because I loved the print itself,  I don't know if the premium you pay is worth it.  It cost almost $25 more to make this quilt. What do you guys think?  Is organic fabric worth the extra money?

  2. It is certainly beautiful, I'm not sure I would spend the extra money, but again maybe.
