IN: 3 yards, some of which is for the next baby quilt. I ordered some Kona solid, and a couple of other pieces ended up in my cart too.
OUT: 5-3/4 yards for the Forest Fellows baby quilt, which includes top, backing, binding, and a bit of waste that was cut away because I matched the print repeat on the top borders.
Here's what's up next, another baby quilt. My nephew and his wife are expecting and her shower is scheduled for Oct. 21 so I need to get going on this.
Palette for baby quilt
The first five prints are from an older line that may have been called Playground, maker unknown. I won a bundle at guild a couple years ago, and based on the cuts in the bundle, I think it was a kit but there was no pattern. There is only a small piece of the focus print and one of the others, so I'm carefully planning how to use them. For scale, the pieces above are 8-1/4" squares.
I added teal Grunge to the palette; I like a darker shade in the mix for a bit of contrast. And I added Kona Bahama Blue, perfect match to the collection prints, enough for the top, border, and backing. Background for the pieced blocks will be a white-on-white from my stash which features numbers.
And now I have a question for you:
The baby is a boy. Do you think the floral in the collection is OK to use or is it too girly? The pattern will feature large flying geese and there will be eight geese of each fabric. I'd like to include the floral because I want the variety of prints, but if it's too girly I'll leave it out and find something else. What do you think?
