baby Bash's quilt



I finally finished that baby quilt I started awhile back. Jess Toye Quilts did the cool wood grain quilting on it, and I love it! I will be sending it off to my cousin's baby Sebastian this week, but I wanted to share it first.



I used a variety of prints in this one - Nordika for blocks and binding, linen texture in sunrise from Bluebird Park for blocks and back, Metro Living circles, Eclectic Elements dictionary print, a Cloud 9 leaf print - it was fun playing with all of these. I started with the tutorial at Moda bake shop for the Zig Zag baby quilt, but then I decided to rotate it and make them steps instead.



The backing is a fun #greatfabricdestash purchase - Michael Miller Zoology in grey. I loved this print when it came out and was happy to finally get to sew with it! I like how the backing is off center - a happy accident. I hope you won't mind the bit of aqua, Katie - it was just too cute not to use!



It's off to live with an adorable little man, and I hope he rolls around on it, gets it dirty and snuggles it up all the time. :)

linking up at SEWjo saturday!

Superb colours and lovely pattern. Love the back, a bit of wonkiness/unsymmetry is good for us sometimes!

Very cute and the backing is great for using up those not quite big enough bits.

I also love that woodgrain quilting pattern. Perfect for a boy quilt.

Any kind of fabric is converted into stylish lovable home accessory like quilts, but it processed with high quality of design patterns... look the indian block print fabric by the yard
