I have been working on another baby quilt and thankfully have this one finished before the deadline! It is nice to not feel as pressured and coming down the wire to finish this one as the I did with the Celebrate Dr. Seuss quilt last week. It was great to make such and easy simple quilt. I love the pattern and had wanted to make it for a while – it was well written and easy to follow, which was great as I am still recovering from exam marking!
For this quilt I collected grey and yellow fabrics over the last 6 months or so then pulled out 6 that I thought went well together to make this quilt. The baby’s room is done in grey and yellow with an elephant theme, so I tried to pull that into the quilt with the fabrics – including fussy cutting out these cute little elephants for the middle of the squares.
The backing is a super soft cuddle fabric with grey and yellow chevron – it worked perfectly with the front! The quilting was done using my walking foot and alternating between straight lines 1/4 inch off the seems and a chevron running through the coloured strips to add a little more interest.
The little one who will be receiving this quilt is due June 6th, so I have a little time to breath with this one! Now to start on the next quilt for the baby due in August – first step is to find a design.
Fabrics: Mix from various places and lines
Backing: Chevron Cuddle fabric
Binding: Kona Medium Grey
