Ombre Confetti Metallic Baby Quilt and Pillow

 

I’ve just finished a custom order baby quilt and pillow and wanted to share them with you.  I used V & Co’s Ombre Confetti Metallic fabric and it is just so darn cute in a baby quilt.  They came out with quite a few new colors recently and they are so fun to use in sewing. 

 

 

I did 16-patch blocks in a checkerboard pattern.  The background fabric is Robert Kaufman Indigo Chambray.  Chambrays are nice fabrics for backgrounds because they have a little more interest to them than solids. 

I used Warm and Natural cotton batting and quilted it on the diagonal, right over all the background squares.  Then I made a bias binding in a Hawthorne Thread fabric called “Artisan Stripe in Gold“.   They have this great stripe in 93 COLORS – do you believe that?  I cut 2.5” strips on the diagonal and made binding from that.  I love the look and the gold binding matches the metallic gold in the confetti fabric so well.  I used my usual machine binding technique.

The backing was a fabric from Art Gallery called “Dream Big” in baby blue.  It has large words that say, “love dream believe repeat” and it makes a great backing fabric.  The finished quilt was 32″x48″. 

The customer also wanted a reading pocket pillow, so I made one.  I plan on a pattern soon in the shop for this.  Stay tuned!

This quilt and pillow are SOLD. 

Thanks for dropping by!
