Baby baby, here’s the next quilt. I love how soft this one feels after it’s come out of the dryer. I used my tumbler die and cut them from a bundle of fat quarters that I bought at Joann’s. I actually bought two stacks when they were on sale with the intent to make a baby quilt. I actually like the way it turned out although I keep wondering if the red is too “in your face”. Maybe I should have used 2 different bundles so there was more contrast. It’s hard to know. I also found yardage of one of the prints at Hancock’s and decided on that for the backing and bias border. I’m really glad that I made that choice. It looks good on the back. The border has all the colors in the quilt top and really pulls it all together.
At the end of the day this was a success. I’m going to try this again with some gender neutral fabrics and see how it looks. The size is perfect for a baby quilt. Either on the floor, in a crib or a car seat. Neither too big or too small.
The red is not too bold. I love the way the blanket looks. The babies who know you are very lucky.
Thanks Terri, I’m pleased with the way this one looks.
