New quilt

Mr. Aitch’s niece is expecting in July and I thought I’d make something as that’s what I do.  Her theme is woodlands, bears specifically.

The baby shower is later this month and knitting a blanket wasn’t going to happen so sewing something was quicker.

I bought this cute bear fabric (by Emma & Mila at Wal-Mart) and coordinating blues and grey for the top as well as some white tone-on-tone star fabric and star embossed grey minky.

The solid grey and pale teal blocks help transition between the two colors.

Machine sewn and quilted with an X secured the top and backing with a thin layer of batting between.

The finished quilt is 45 inches square.  The back looks metallic but that’s just how the light reflected off the furry surface.  I have more fabric left so I’m thinking of sewing a few accessories such as burp cloths and at least one box bag.  Any other suggestions?

  1. Find coordinating ribbon and make a taggie to love when baby can’t bring the whole blanket somewhere. Grosgrain and smooth for a bit of texture.

    Lovely quilt!
