Making a new quilt

What with their being a new baby girl to love and cherish, it’s time to make a quilt for her.

I’ve been scouring Spoonflower for custom fabrics which I can use in her baby quilt.

I’m just so head over heels in love with her.

She takes my breath away every time I look at her.

It’s hard to glance away for a moment.

I want to sew a quilt to make people gasp in awe when they see it and wrap that little one in a lot of hand made love.

Her parents have picked out an animal theme for her mobile, so I’ve decided to use delicate but non-gendered woodland-inspired fabrics for the quilt.

Here’s what I came up with on my first pass.

A lot of designs in the set come from gingerlous, a fabric and wallpaper designer at Spoonflower, so unsurprisingly, the fabrics work nicely together.

I love the artist’s rendering of the little animal faces, oversized and angled with big eyes and bushy fur, and these two are my favorites:

I also used some greenery fabrics to fill in the quilt and provide it with patterning.

I’m thinking I will make the baby quilt designed by Amy Smart called Craftsman.

It’s a simple block pattern that shouldn’t take more than two days to complete, and the large rectangles will create beautiful vignettes of my selected fabrics.

Here’s to a new baby AND a new quilt!
