I have squeezed in a custom order this week for a baby quilt ~ a request for a quilt in the style of these baby quilts made way back in July 2009 when I first started blogging. I rarely look back through my older blog posts ... I cannot believe it's been nearly four years of blogging already. This is post #930.
But I digress. Working with the blue/green palette was refreshing and combining these prints with a plain linen/cotton blend adds texture and a touch of luxury. This was a quick and simple project made during a lengthy spell of unusually
warm hot weather and a great way to use my stash.
I think you'll recognize many of the fabrics used.
For the back of the quilt I have used a fun print by Barbara Jones from the Cruzin' Collection (Henry Glass), and binding fabric is from Pat Bravo's Carnaby Street Collection (Art Gallery Fabrics).
And whilst my my blue and green fabric stashes were already upturned I thought it wise to cut an extra set of squares for a second baby quilt. I enjoy every stage (even the basting!) of making a baby quilt but as always I particularly enjoy collating the fabrics.
This second baby quilt has already been snapped up by a keen customer and is now making it's way across the Pacific Ocean.

Binding fabric for both quilts is from Pat Bravo's Carnaby Collection, it is such an effective binding fabric that I have ordered more. You will more than likely see it used again.
Thank you for stopping by,
