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!
