Blogger's Quilt Festival :: Baby Blooms


Can you even stand it?! Another quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I'm on fire getting stuff done around here - which won't last but I'm enjoying it while it does. This is one of my favorite color combinations ever, put together with HST's. I used Christina's size chart which is posted here at Whip-Up and chose the Kona colors all based on a print I loved that I used both as inspiration and for the backing. I used the 8 1/2" squares for this method to end up with 5" finished squares.


I'm pretty sure this whole project and the way I quilted it was inspired by a triangle quilt that Debbie at A Quilter's Table made a long time ago (last year maybe?). I just started the quilting with one kind of zig-zaggy line through the quilt along the HST's and then echoed it and started in new spots when I needed to. It's 25"x35" (120") total and I couldn't love it more. Wouldn't this make a great prop for a cool baby photo? The colors just pop.


The inspiration print! This was such a quick sew - I can see more (and maybe larger ones) in my future. Thanks for stopping by!
