circa 52 stripes

Just a quick and easy strip quilt! I’ve been hanging onto this great fat quarter stack of the newish line by Monaluna for Birch Fabrics, Circa 52, for a while, and I’m happy to have come up with a fun way to use them.

These prints are so cute (and organic, which makes me love them even more!). I love the trees, and especially that cute forest print with the fox and bunting.

I wasn’t quite sure what other fabrics to pair with these prints, but after pulling out and auditioning many options, I was surprisingly pleased with these calming colors paired with a little bit of hot pink.

With Max crawling around and into almost everything, I needed something quick and easy, and this was just the ticket. I went with stripes, limiting myself to just 2″, 3″ and 4″ wide strips. I staggered the lengths, and alternated the widths of the strips as I went along. As a happy accident, a few of my strips ended up not quite long enough, so at the end I added a few vertical pieces to add to the length.

This quilt makes me very happy – I love the simple look, and I’m loving these colors, along with the variety of fun prints!

Circa 52 Organic is available at many shops, including Fabricworm, The Quilted Castle, Whipstitch and Sew Fresh Fabrics.

    I like the quilt. You are so good that you still manage to sew while looking after a little one. I pretty much gave up for a few years. My excuse was that they are only a year apart and I was unwell during my second pregnancy.

    Your ability to be able to mix and match colours is amazing. It is the thing that gives me the most headaches burt I guess that is where the skill lies! Max is adorable but I also love the stacking animals. It would be great to know where these were from or the brand.
