The first baby shower was in December, there was another in February, and then the little guy was born last week. So obviously I needed to get this done ASAP since I missed all my other deadlines. His name is Finn, how adorable and Gleeky is that 😉
I finished the top super fast, but I was really stuck on the back. I made the blocks, then just couldn’t figure out how to arrange them or what color to sash them in. I’m learning how important inspiration is and that if I love what I’m creating then it’s easy for me to find time to work on the project.
All print fabrics are Denise Schmidt Hope Valley. My favorites are the blues, greens, and greys, so those became the focus on the back. The “white” is Kona Natural, and the binding is Kona Coal with a smidge of Cactus Calico Piney Woods snuck in. It’s quilted with random straight lines like my pinwheel quilt. The finished size is 36″ x 49″.
I really love how colorful it is without being gaudy or too bright. Can’t wait for a picture of the little guy lounging on his new quilt. I was completely inspired by these beauties by two of my favorite quilters: patchwork squares and scrap border.
