baby wonderland III

Sometimes simple is best, which is why I continue to come back to the simple charm square quilt.

I especially love this type of quilt with the MoMo Wonderland fabrics. This is my third — another baby quilt. I realize that this is a bit repetitive, but maybe we could blame it on the end of summer? I’ve been trying to spend more time enjoying the end of summer and less time sewing (which is a bit hard for me! I’ll admit to bringing my fabric scraps to the beach so I can do both simultaneously!)

The backing is one of the polka dot prints from this line, which I really love, and the binding is a nice chocolate brown solid.

For the quilting on this one, I continued with the diagonal quilting lines, though on this one I used three lines about a 1/4″ apart running diagonally in one direction with one line running diagonally in the other direction. I skipped every other diagonal so it wouldn’t be too busy. I love this pattern, and I think I’ll probably play around with some more straight line quilting in the future!

It measures about 34″ x 42″ and is now for sale in the shop. Sold! Thanks Megan!

I love this quilt as much as I’ve loved the previous two I made. And speaking of, the second version of this quilt was sold to Angie, and she kindly sent me photos of the quilt in its new home. I was thrilled that she took the time to take a few photos – it’s fun to see that she’s loving it! Thanks Angie!~

    I agree with you — simple is best! I love the back fabric… the dots were one of my favourites in the collection :) I’ve got a bunch of Wonderland charm packs that I need to make quilts out of!

    I love to do simple squares on baby quilts and to play around with color. Like you, I often do straight line quilting with them…sometimes I use the serpentine stitch and sometimes just the straight stitch. Your baby quilts are really cool. I have also been trying out different quilting line combos lately. It’s fun. Love your blog!

    Oh, this is so cute. I have Wonderland in the 10″ squares and have plans… I really like the polka dots on the back and the solid brown binding.

    The quilt is adorable and so is the giant polka dot backing. What caught my eye was the texture of the warehouse background in contrast with the jumping colors of the quilt.

    I stumbled across your blog via a quilting friend of mine, and I just have to say you make some lovely stuff. This particular quilt is so simple, and yet so gorgeous – the quilting is genius! I like the idea of using simple lines in various combinations (like the last quilt with two lines together, and this quilt with three, crossed with single lines) – brilliant :-)

    Love the quilt! I just bought some MoMo Wonderland in a jellyroll to start a quilt of my own because yours is so cute! Question: what size squares did you use for this quilt?
