Sweet Baby Quilt

I’m loving making crib quilts right now.

This is the twin to the last quilt I made. I used pink Aurifil thread and some extra grey Cotton + Steel fabric on the backing.

The batting is wool, and I like that. It adds a nice layer of puffiness.

I think this Cotton + Steel print is sweet and perfect for a tiny baby girl.

The quilting here is a bit more random, but I stuck with the basic X and straight lines to create a pretty and consistent movement.

I hope everyone has been well.

Flannel Baby Quilt

This flannel quilt is simple in its appearance and construction. I was thinking a baby’s close up view of the world, about the spaces between the meeting of matter, and how those meetings blur into lines.

The finished size is 57″ by 58″. Robert Kaufman flannel is the front fabric.  Aurifil thread is used for the sewing and quilting.

For the back fabric a plain blue Robert Kaufman quilting cotton. The print fabrics used in the backing and binding are from Abi Hall’s collection “Jurassic Jamboree” for Moda.

Here is the original concept. Creating one-off designs is one of the reasons I love to make quilts and embroidery pieces. Translating an idea from one form to the next presents a natural challenge for me.
