Willow Wren Baby Quilt

I started cutting this fabric last weekend, along with a whole bunch of other fabric, intending to make a really colourful quilt using 6" squares. But once I started getting it onto my design wall I just wasn't happy - and decided it needed some sashing between the squares. But alas, I had run out of white (remedied as of yesterday, thankfully!) So I used some of the squares and the rest of a Bella solids jelly roll I had (just enough of) to make up the quilt top.

This is a pattern I made up and have made three quilts using it now - and I have nearly finished writing up the pattern which will be a free tutorial once its done :)

I stippled this one - I really do love the texture that stippling gives a quilt! I used a cream thread to match the sashing.

The backing is a single piece of striped fabric (Benartex I think) in pink, orange and yellow which looks pretty good with the front. The binding is Kona Cardinal - I love the red across the width of the quilt top and I think the red binding looks really great.

Quilt Stats:
* Fabric - Willow wren from Alexander Henry, Bella solid in snow, Kona cardinal (binding)
* Pattern - my own design
* Size - 40" x 60"

This one is for sale in my madeit shop.

I now need to get onto some quilted bottle bags for my parents, quilting my Charmed prints quilt for my nephew and quilting my daughter's 1001 peeps quilt ready for Christmas - 11 days should be enough?!? I may have some late, late nights ahead of me...

happy stitching,
