Modern Metro Living Baby Quilt

This is a new favorite.  After doing a few quilts in muted and soft colors it's nice to use these bright vivid prints.

Another good use for half-square triangles.  

I think this is great for baby boys but it also would work well in a gender-neutral nursery.  The fabrics are from the Metro Living collection by Robert Kaufman.

I quilted it in straight lines around the outside of each color group.  I had intended to only stitch in the ditch but I wasn't paying attention and I did an extra row around one of the colors.  Since I hate ripping out more than doing extra quilting each color got 3 rows of stitching.  In the end I think it worked out perfectly and the back looks pretty cool too.

The back is the same white as the front and the binding is a solid navy blue.  I love how it looks against that white.

This quilt is available in my etsy shop if you're interested.  

Meanwhile I am finishing up a custom toddler quilt using more Strawberry Fields Revisited and starting to pick/order fabrics for a custom wedding signature quilt.  Check out my Instagram account for more frequent updates.
