Bunny Quilt on the Wall

I need a special baby quilt for a baby who's due in November. After three boys - and lots of boy cousins - the family is having a girl. Mama's favorite color is purple and she likes animals, so I found the cutest bunny print I know she'll love.

To let the fabrics do all the work, I'm just doing a simple triangle quilt. Here are the pieces laid out on my design wall. I pieced together a strip for the backing with the leftovers; the rest of the backing will be the bunny print.

This is something I can work on elsewhere if I kit it up, and I need several projects for off-site sewing coming up soon. To kit it up, I've labeled the columns and rows. Yes, even a triangle quilt like this goes together using the columns and rows system. I'll take the pieces in each column off the wall, and stack them from top to bottom and clip them together so they'll be in order for when I'm ready to sew.

Simple but cute.

  1. It's such a lovely colorway! Good luck with keeping the pieces in that order when you take them to your retreat. (Even when I label units/rows they seem to jump around in the short distance between my design wall and my sewing machine.)

  2. That is so sweet! the colors are so cool!

  3. That's a colour combo I wouldn't have thought to put together, but it looks good, and the "quilt" is looking really great so far!

  4. I love that quilt for a baby girl. those are gorgeous colours. So many people now want greys and taupe for babies, but I love these soft colours you've chosen. I'm sure the parents will be delighted. Thank you for linking up to the Peacock Party.

  5. This is such a happy baby quilt. It will be perfect for the new baby girl in your family.
