Patchwork Baby Quilt

I finished something that I started! I'm just glad I didn't set it aside and add to the pile of ridiculousness I call my WIPs.

No matter how many patchwork quilts I make, I still find them fun to work on. They're beyond simple so they come together quickly, but it's really the fabrics you pull that make it.

This quilt came together because I was staring at a pile of my Konas and it occurred to me that I needed to make something with a few of them. It's what happens when I have time on my hands... I go and stare and pet fabric. It's quite sad, really.

The back is Kona Celery and errr... A Moda Bella solid? I have no idea what its name is because I'm not that organised and also, I suck.

I was going to slap a Kona Chocolate binding on it, then just before I sewed it on, I remembered I had some grey and white dot that would probably look better. Dot anything always looks better, no?

It ended up measuring 41" by 47" and is now available in the shop SOLD.
