A while back I shared some progress snaps of this quilt on Instagram. I remember it was the first heat wave of the summer and I was happy to sew with berry and fruit coloured fabric.
I actually finished it a while back, but it took a bit to get pictures and to gift it to its new little owner. Now that all of this is done, here are some impressions:
#tagged, because it’s such an obvious name, which stuck with me, once it implanted in my brain as a working title. I made this pattern up using blocks consisting of hourglasses (one of my favs) and rectangle pieces. I hope to get this into published/written form at some point.
The pretty large pieces within each block offer the chance to really show different prints off. When I make baby quilts I try to make them bold, colourful and I usually include stimulating patterns or prints for the baby to explore.
So happy I found the orange striped fabric in my stash, it made for the perfect binding. The fabrics I used making this quilt are of various origin. There’s an IKEA print, Tula Pink, Cotton + Steel and some that I don’t even know what they are. The background is from Jeni Baker’s Dreamin’ Vintage collection and was the perfect find for this.
Have a great weekend everyone =)
