I finished a couple of baby quilts last night, after the stroke of midnight (yeah, NYE in this house is off the hook), so I present you with my first quilts of 2010 :)
I decided to make a couple more stripey quilts since I really liked how the one I did for my friend turned out. This first one features a Heidi Grace fabric I absolutely adore and have been loathe to use till now. Red and aqua go so well together, so I used a red pindot fabric, and a white solid to make the fabrics pop.
I set the first strip farther from the top but on hindsight I wish I'd set it a little farther down.
Isn't that the cutest fabric? I don't want to admit it to myself but I'm pretty sure I'm hoarding it for my future children's quilts lol
The back of the quilt's got the same red, aqua and white, but I put a little square of aqua check fabric I had leftover from a previous project.I love that little square.
It ended up measuring 40" by 49".
The second quilt's made from Jay McCarroll's Garden Friends line in the mint colourway. I've been working on a Garden Friends quilt for our bed, and I thought I'd like to make a baby quilt version too.I initially didn't want to use the dark grey (Kona Coal, me thinks) because I thought it might make it look too dark and boring. But I quite like the combination, especially with the white solids between the strips.
I think the strawberries are my favourite print from the Garden Friends line. The tomatoes come a close second.
The quilt ended up measuring 41" by 50" and both quilts are now listed in the store :)
*Edit* The Garden Friends quilt is now SOLD.
