This is my favorite baby quilt so far! It was given to Jen, mom-to-be, on Saturday at her baby shower. I was not personally there, but I was sent a picture text of Jen with the quilt. I hope her and baby girl enjoy it! It was quick and pretty easy to create... as I just made up the design as I went along. My brain thrives on simplicity, apparently. Good or bad, I don't know.
I somewhat randomly chose 24 squares out of my pack of 80 Amy Butler "Daisy Chain" squares. Then I strolled down to one of my local quilt shops and picked up some coordinating backing and binding, also by Amy Butler.
I used a light gray Kona Cotton on the front sashing. Its a bit lighter than the Amy Butler gray, but seems to work well. I'm really into gray for some reason... I'm just drawn to it!
I did A LOT of straight line quilting, which took me about 3 hours. I just followed the width of my walking foot - and it turned out quite lovely! After a gentle cycle in the washing machine, it softened right up. Finished measurements are about 35" x 40"... didn't actually measure it but that's my best guess.
I think another baby quilt might be in order from the remaining squares, what do you think?
