This baby quilt has it all--
bunnies, birds, and bees, and a fair amount of polka dots
constellations and clouds & birds
adorable singing owls
pinecones, flowers, chicks & eggs, and some green woodgrain
a lone butterfly and some dandelion fluff
undercover birds cleverly disguised as medallions
The backing has even more birds! This organic Cloud 9 fabric is available at Joann’s.
The radiating circles are hypnotic from the back.
The binding is an Ansonia print by Denyse Schmidt. I was hoping to use polka dots for the binding, but after auditioning several fabrics I kept coming back to this plaid. How does Denyse do it? Every fabric line she designs seems to have a plaid print, and it is always fresh and unique. She is a fabric designing genius!
So, I come back to my question from an earlier post, “Can I make a modern quilt?” I spent a lot of time designing this quilt, from the colors, the asymmetrical negative space, to the dense circular quilting. And I can confidently answer, yes I can! Yay! Now I can go back to making modern traditional quilts.
The final quilt measures 39” x 39” and is quilted with two layers of batting for extra coziness.
