Baby’s Quilt

Here’s a sneak peak at the fabrics I’ve picked out for baby’s quilt:

I’m kind of obsessed with this teal, apple green and grey color combo.  It’s just such a fun pairing for a baby boy!  The fabrics are Laurie Wisburn’s Tufted Tweets, Monaluna Circa 50s and a collection of coordinating Kona Cotton solids.  After setting out all the fabrics I decided to pair them up, choosing two prints that looked nicely together and a coordinating solid.  The result was the following set of fabrics.

I decided to go with a Wonky Log Cabin quilt, since I’ve never made one before and I thought it would be fun with these prints.  Here are some of my favorite blogs so far (they are 9.5″ blocks):

I’ve made 14 blocks so far and I figure I’ll need about 30 blocks to make a good sized quilt.  Halfway there!  I am also debating whether or not I want to do sashing between the blocks.  I’ll have to play around with it when I have all the blocks finished.

By the way, the nursery remodel is almost complete.  I can’t wait to show you the finished pictures, it’s SUCH a great space!  The glider turned out amazing, I’ll do a separate post for that.

[SIDE NOTE:  My new camera is FANTASTIC!  I am loving being able to take great pictures in super low light.  Perfect for these long, dark Seattle winters!]

  2. These blocks look great!

  3. Outstanding, as usual!

  4. So cute, I love the colors! It is all so fun and boyish, but not just traditional boring boyish. You should SERIOUSLY do the quilt backed in minky like you did Sammy’s. I know this will probably never happen, but we LOVE it! Sammy sleeps on his every night and it’s so soft and cozy, then we take it out and all cuddle in it.

  5. So so great Sar! I can’t WAIT to see the baby’s room from a far🙂
