|Yup, it's still windy here|
I decided on a simple layout of 5" squares. I cut 6 squares each out of 8 different fabrics. The baby's mama likes neutrals so I pulled a selection with tans and greys to make a low-ish volume palette. The print with the leaves is a Lonni Rossi fabric that Ann at The Orange Crumpled Napkin sent me (thanks, Ann!!)
The quilt came to 30"x40", a perfect baby size. I quilted it with straight lines outlining the seams to keep things simple and soft and backed it with some flannels from my stash. A cream binding and it was all done; from start to finish in one morning!
This was the first time I've ever used Hobbs heirloom cotton batting and it won't be the last! I love how it made for a lighter quilt and I swear, I think it's softer than my quilts using Warm and Natural usually turn out.
Another quilt, set off into the world to lead it's own life :) I'm linking up to Finish It Friday, hop over there to see what everyone else has been up to.
[edited to add:] So there I was, cutting 1.5" strips of some lovely Kona Bone and I finally did it. Sliced a chunk off my finger with the rotary cutter. Those boogers are sharp! Blood got EVERYWHERE, except on the fabric. Lol. Surely that is some kind of proof I am a quilter? I'll sacrifice anything to keep the fabric clean. I don't think stitches will be needed, but I'll keep you posted. The worst part? I was going to finish that quilt today!
