Babies and bicycles

5 Aug

Continuing with baby quilts finished in the last year, here is a wonky log cabin quilt. I combined my precious few Heather Ross prints in a yellow-and-pink quilt that wouldn’t be too bland. I used two solids from Amy Butler, both alternating with the prints and for the sashing.

I machine quilted the 3×3 block design with random horizontal and vertical lines, free hand. Some double quilt lines add interest.

The backing is one of my favorite baby prints, Alexander Henry’s 2D Zoo. The quilt top was exactly the width of the backing fabric, eliminating any need for piecing the back.

With the addition of the solid pink, had just enough fabric scraps left over for a scrappy binding after piecing the top.

This quilt was a gift to a pretty baby girl in Barcelona. Encantada d’haver-te conegut, Ona!
