munki munki baby strings quilt

This quilt was a fun one to make, and a fun one to see finished! It seems like it was a long time coming — perhaps because I collected these great Munki Munki prints for so many years. I love Heather Ross (as you know!), so of course I felt I had to collect these early prints she designed for Munki Munki.

Recently I had the urge to let them see the light of day, and decided to cut them all up and use them all together in one quilt. It’s playful and fun, cheery and bright, and makes a really great I Spy quilt.

It’s also quite possibly one of the softest quilts – these prints are printed on the nicest base cloth and it washes up to become buttery soft. Perfect for a baby quilt, no?

I quilted it with straight lines (a bit tedious to quilt, but well worth the effort!). The batting is my favorite Quilter’s Dream cotton, and for the backing I opted for the wonderful strawberry print from Heather’s most recent line, Briar Rose.

And as much as I love it, it’s listed here in the shop. The fun for me was collecting all these prints and then sewing them into a quilt. I’m hoping someone out there will have fun snuggling under it!

    In these sharp photos, I LOVE the mix of small prints & plain colored fabrics! I see tiny apples, chickens, buses, flowers, bikes, dogs….. a wide range of small prints! Again your little one is the center of attention. You possess a true “eye” for color coordination as well as design in the placement of diagonals & squares in your UNIQUE QUILT. And as mentioned a simple striped stitching for quilting… PLAYFUL, BRIGHT– INDEED! Sarah Helene, Minneapolis

    That baby is definitely related to her brother, and they are both as cute as they can be. So great for pictures. Pretty quilt too.
