I don't know about you, but somehow I seem to end up with endless pieces of batting in varying sizes, most just big enough for a baby quilt. I am quickly running out of storage space for these pieces of batting and therefore thought it wise to make a baby quilt.
Quilt size as determined by the size of the leftover batting: 30 inches x 36.5 inches
What's more, making a small quilt it is a good opportunity to try out some closely spaced quilting lines. By moving the needle position as far as possible away from the previous stitching line, and by using the outer edge of my walking foot and the previous stitching line as a guide, I have quilted lines just a tad more than a half inch apart.
The finished quilt is a little rustic and "organic", particularly so, as I have washed and tumble dried this quilt for extra crinkle effect.
The red small scale floral fabric used for both the small squares and the binding is a Liberty of London print called Millie. It is definitely one of my favorite Liberty prints. It has washed and tumble dried well without any color run, although I did not expect any color run from a Liberty fabric.
You can find this baby quilt in my Etsy Store.
