Little Baby Girl Quilt

It's official, fall is over. New England is in that dreary season where everything is dormant and isn't covered in snow yet. The world is a depressing shade of gray. The background does nothing to the contrast of this little quilt made for a dear, best friend for her first baby. The collection is Wildflowers from Camelot. 





She was very specific in her request, no pink and not overly girly. Well then, peach it was and although this quilt isn't pink it's still girly (I win). The chartreuse and aqua balance it out to make it less girly, but it's still sweet. I used the Penny Patch pattern from Stitched in Color.  It's been on my to do list for quite sometime and ended up playing well with the colors from this line. I sewed up extra parts and they became bits and pieces for the backing.




Net Zero Update: 

This little quilt used 4.75 yards in total, including the top pieces, binding and pieced backing. Last month I was a net of - 25.25 and I am starting this month down another -4.75 yards, for a total of -30 yards. Yay me!

  2. Beautiful quilt. I agree that peach is a happy compromise for folks adverse to pink (like me!). I hope your friend and her first child love it!

  3. cute quilt. I always use mint or lemon as a compromise colour for baby quits. I've never thought of peach before

  4. As many times as I've seen this quilt, I didn't realize it was a Penny Patch. (Duh.) I've been meaning to make one, too. The fabrics here are so lovely -- the design does them justice. Well done!

    Hey, what did you end up using for the binding? Looks like the cute gray flower fabric and some scraps. In any event, it's perfect!

  5. Great color combo - girly without really looking girly. Well done!

  7. I recognize that pack of fabrics! Penny patch was definitely the right choice on how to use this beautiful color palette, it does a great job of letting the different prints shine. Nice finish and good for you miss stash user :)
