Just One More Thing ...

A Fresh and Modern Baby Quilt (are you getting sick of seeing these? yet again?)


What can I say? Some my favorite fabric designers, Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt,  Heather Bailey - lovely fabrics make cute baby quilts.


Together with a very basic but sweet pieced back.  The small floral print is a Japanese print called Spring Garden purchased from This and That from Japan on Etsy.



Quilted with straight vertical lines, just one inch apart and I am still loving polka dot fabric for binding.  This time another Japanese import - Kei Honeycomb in blue.


A reminder also that whilst I am at the Sisters' Market on Saturday November 7 (Australian Eastern Daylight Time), my Etsy Store will be closed, re-opening Sunday 8 November 2009.

  26. Ooh, I like this for a quick & simple baby quilt! I have a list of several baby quilts to make, and this will be next, assuming I can find the fabric pretty enough to make it work.

  27. Beautiful quilt! I know this was posted awhile ago, but I'm wondering if you can tell me more about that Japanese print you used called Spring Garden? I'm looking all over for it. I've been on the hunt for something exactly like that for a special project for my daughter.

    I just love browsing your quilts. Keep up the good work!
