I created this quilt using extra fabric I had on hand from making a baby quilt for my niece last year. My sister asked for coral and aqua colors with some grey. In this quilt I added a few more neutral grays and beiges. I love the simplicity of the rectangles and how the coral and aqua combine with the neutrals for a modern look.
For the backing, I used a Riley Blake fabric with cute little animals on it called Woodland Tails. And, I finally added a label to a quilt! I wrote my own label with a permanent pen and whipstitched it onto the back. I quilted the fabric with vertical straight lines about an inch apart. It’s probably some of the most dense quilting I have done and I love how crinkly and cozy it immediately looked when it came out of the dryer.
I headed to the nearest park on my bike one afternoon to take photos. This is the first quilt I’ve taken pictures of in Florida. I took a few pictures of the quilt by climbing on top of some playground equipment and leaning over as far as I could to try to get a square picture. It looked good on the preview but when I tried to rotate it in my editor, it was clear that I didn’t quite get it square. I’m sure the park attendant enjoyed my antics though.
This is my first listing in my Etsy shop! I’ve been planning to do this for about a year…and I dragged out the making of this quilt for about that long. But I finally bit the bullet and opened a shop. Of course Etsy recommended that I have put 10 items in my shop, but this was all I had. (I’ve since added a couple more and I’m working to finish even more.)
