Aqua and Brown Baby Quilt

How easily I get distracted!


I so enjoyed working with the fabrics that Lara sent me for this month's Around the Block swap, that I was inspired to use the brown and blue fabrics to make a little baby quilt.

 Quilt measures:  31 inches x 24.5 inches

I used a similar layout to the Lunar Dust and Frog Pond quilt that I have previously made.  Both the front and the back of the quilt are pieced.


The fabrics used are mainly from the Katie Jump Rope collection by Denyse Schmidt, but also includes some Flea Market Fancy and  a print from Red Letter Day  by Lizzy House.


The binding fabric is a Kei Honeycomb print, an aqua dot on an off-white background. (Check out the new Kei Honeycomb Dots that will be coming out soon!).  The main fabric used for this quilt is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Ash.

This baby quilt or stroller blanket  is now available in my Etsy Store.

  15. I love the colors your work is beautiful. I know where you got this fabric from but when you order online do you have a favorite site you can share? I started piecing a quilt similar to your Pretty in Pink quilt. Thanks so much for the inspiration
