Squares In Squares Baby Quilt
Hushabye fabric left, and unfortunately I didn't. So what I did was pull the colours and feel of the fabrics and went from there. I didn't try too hard to recreate it because I knew it would be an impossible task to make the quilt look exactly like Hushabye. So I went with darker browns, damasks and dots so that it didn't look too baby-ish. I realise that there's more contrast with the fabrics I chose, but I kind of like that.
I used a solid light pink thread for the quilting because it seemed to fade into the blocks a little better than a white or off-white. And I did loopy quilting because it's so fun and quick.
