Preppy Baby Girl Quilt
Well today's post is going to be short and sweet thanks to some incredibly frustrating crappy internet service we've been having the last 2 days. This seems to happen every few weeks. We get a spurt of bad days where the internet in the house is so slow I actually have to use my phone's hot spot to get anything done. UGH - Comcast - UGH!!!!
Anyways, I made up this quick and cute patchwork baby quilt the other day. I had bought some of Tasha Noel's Countrygirls collection a while back and never got around to using it until I had a craving to make something in my favorite navy and green palate.
I decided to go with the checkerboard look on this one because I really like the blues and greens and aquas to pop out. I think sometimes a quilt can look all muddled if there's not enough white or low volume prints in the palate.
I quilted it criss-cross fashion. Easily my go to choice for quilting patchworks like this.
The back is a piece of the main novelty fabric from the collection and has the most adorable little girls doing farmy stuff.
The binding is the floral navy print and like usual I machine stitched it on. I got so lucky to have that little cutie end up sitting just perfect in the corner of the quilt.
This was such a nice project for me to complete - easy and quick and turned out cute. Plus it helped me use up some of my stash so I think I may be able to justify a few more purchases in the near future. Anyone else indulging in Vintage Picnic?
If you're interested this sweet quilt is available in my etsy shop.
