concord grapes baby quilt

Another quilt little baby patchwork quilt for you today – once again made with my favorite pairing of Liberty of London and some great solids (along with a few extra printed fabrics).

I never tire of pulling out my Liberty stash and putting together prints in various colors, and I always find it a fun challenge to find other printed fabrics which complement the Liberty prints (I think I’ve said it before, but sometimes I do find it hard to find fabrics that work well with Liberty, aside from other Liberty or solids, of course, so it’s always a fun challenge to find a few to add to the mix).

I didn’t set out to make a pink and purple quilt, but I seemed to find many prints in those colors which looked good together, so there you have it. And it’s named for my love of concord grapes, which were recently ready around here (I wait all year for the concord grapes and seem to have passed my love of them on to Max as well – now I actually have to share!)

The majority of solids in this one are Cloud 9 Cirrus solids, which are really beautiful – to look at and to sew with!

I backed it with an older navy Lotta Jansdotter print from her first collection, and used a fun crosshatch print for the binding.

If our third had been a girl, I’d definitely be hanging on to this one, but since he’s not, I’ve decided to list it for sale here. (Feel free to email me instead if you have questions and are not an Instagram user)

(and of course, my trusty helpers! Despite my repeated suggestion to stay behind the quilt, they can’t seem to resist a chance to have their photo taken with each and every quilt!)

    Beautiful, and nicely balanced. Adding blue to purple and pink makes a nice analogous color scheme.

    This is such a beautiful quilt, and a reminder to me that quilts don’t have to be complicated to be beautiful!

    Love the quilt! So girly. I have to say that I love it when those cuties sneak into the picture….<3 Max is adorable as always, and I have to say that I don't think I have seen this close of a pic of Hazel in a while. She is really looking "grown up." They're not babies anymore, are they! Can't wait to see the new little guy. When is he due, and have you picked out a name yet?
