Modern Linen Baby Quilt

I have quietly been working away to stock my Etsy Store with more of these popular baby quilts.

Baby Quilt measures 24.5 inches x 31 inches

I am really enjoying making these, from selecting the fabrics and the piecing, to the quilting and the binding. (I am still not a great fan of basting!). I must say it certainly does get easier each time you quilt your own quilt and you get to know your sewing machine.

The Back

The printed fabrics that I used for this baby quilt were scraps from the quilt that I made earlier this week, and include some fussy cut flower fabrics from Kaffe Fassett.


The solid fabric used here is the ever popular Handkerchief Linen, a blend of 55% cotton and 45% linen. This colorway is called Birch. I have also again used QuiltLite as a batting to ensure this baby quilt is suitable for Summer seasons and warmer climates.

I have now updated my Etsy Store to include this delightful baby quilt.
