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!]
