Some weeks just call for simple sewing and fabric play and that's what these two quilts are all about. Patchwork plus fabric and color play ...

Quilted by ditch stitching vertical and horizontal (edge to edge) seam lines, then adding additional vertical lines of stitching just a little more than 1 inch apart. The quilting, together with the use of the low loft cotton batting, give these quilts a lovely texture and soft drape; perfect for baby play time, and toddler nap time!
The back of the quilt features a single newsprint fabric from the Story collection by Carrie Bloomston. The fabric used for the back of the quilts were leftover pieces of fabric from previously pieced quilt backs for larger quilts. It's nice to be able to use these smaller pieces of backing fabric (and batting) in such a practical way, and truth be told piecing, basting, quilting, and binding small quilts makes for a nice change.
Each quilt measures 34 inches x 41 inches (or 86cm x 104cm)
Each finished square measures 3.75" x 3.75" ~
size was determined by the size of the buck/deer head print.
All new cotton quilting fabrics and 100% cotton batting.
