One of my first quilting fabric buys in 2007 was a selection of precuts and yardage from Tula Pink‘s Full Moon Fancy line. I made my very first quilt with it, for my goddaughter’s 1st birthday gift. Please excuse the horrible photo, taken in the dark Finnish winter many moons ago.
The rest of the fabric I’ve pretty much just been sitting on ever since. The line sold out, and I’ve been scared to use up what little I have left. This past summer I finally decided to make another baby quilt out of the blue-green fabrics left over from the girly quilt. I mostly used charm squares and cut some more out of yardage and white Essex cotton-linen blend.
I quilted a simple diamond grid and added a scrappy binding, made up by leftover prints of a jelly roll.
There was just enough yardage of the blue tree trunk print to get a continuous backing out of it.
Photographing out on location isn’t my strong suit but now it’s nice to think back on this sunny by windy day last summer. This quilt was a christening gift for a baby boy in my family.
