a baby neapolitan quilt

You may recall that the zig zag baby quilt was the first one I actually finished. It’s still one of my favorites, so I decided to do another, this time incorporating pink. I added in some orange and brown prints, and the resulting quilt really reminds me of neapolitan ice cream.

I’ve been trying to be better at actually using some of my favorite fabrics, so in this one you’ll see some of the Heather Ross bicycles I’ve been saving, as well as the light pink floral print.

As with my first, I quilted this very simply, following the zig zag lines. I did a straight stitch 1/4″ away from each zig zag, and I (still) like the pattern on the back. (I say still, because I think I said the very same thing about the first quilt!)

Since I still don’t know anyone having a baby, I think this one might end up for sale… providing I can part with it!

    Hi! I am new to your blog, but your lovely quilts have inspired me to start quilting myself. Do you sell your quilts on etsy? I have searched your blog but can’t seem to find that info anywhere. Thanks!

    Hey there! First time here and I love your blog! I found my way over here after reading Heather Ross’s blog about the Summer Blouse you made. I just bought her book today with the intentions of making the blouse my first project, so the posting was very timely for me! I read all your posts down to this one and plan on adding you to my Reader so I can keep track of you. :)
