Sweet Striped Baby Quilt


Hi Y'All.  

It's been awhile since my last post.  I got caught up in our never-ending basement project - I'll share pictures soon - but check my instagram for a few peeks.  Then the holiday stuff took over - the putting up and then the putting away.  So now that those two huge time sucks are done, I'm back into a more regular routine and hoping I can post here at least once a week.  I know there's a few emails that I need to catch up on so if you're waiting to hear from me I hope to clear those out in the next week.



Now onto the fun stuff.  I just finished this baby girl quilt for my sister-in-law.  She's expecting her first baby in March and the shower is in a couple of weeks.  Her taste runs a little more modern so I knew I wanted to do something other than a typical patchwork.  





The stripes are 1 inch cut and finish at 1/2 inch wide.  It was a little tricky trying to iron the seams flat but so worth the outcome.

The back is a sweet print that I picked up from Joann's last winter and have been waiting for just the right project.



I quilted it in diagonal crisscross pattern.  Kinda traditional but I didn't want to take away from the simplicity of the front with fancy swirls or loops.  I thought about mimicking the stripes but I didn't think that would be the best treatment for the back.  



I really liked how this quilt turned out.  So bright and happy.  I love the contrast between the stripes and the white background.  



This one is being sent off to it's new home but I do have enough of these fabrics to make another.  If you're interested just hop over to my etsy shop and look at the Sweet Stripe Baby Quilt.
