and more striped quilts…

So I told you I was going to show you another quilt using this simple design – how about two? I love this stripe from Lotta Jansdotter’s newest collection, Bella, and thought it might be a perfect stripe to use with this design. I love that the stripes are a bit irregular, and I really love it in this charcoal color.

One of my good friends recently had twin boys, so I paired that gray and white stripe with some solids in green and blue for the bottom portion, and with the opposite color for the middle stripe (matching, but hopefully not too matchy?)

I think they look quite nice together!

They each got some super soft Heather Ross Mendocino fish for the backing, and a fun binding

I had fun with a little more straight line quilting – single lines about 3/4″ apart for one, and a little twist on that for the second.

I hope these two new little boys will spend lots of time hanging out on these quilts!

Each quilt measures about 36" x 42/44" or so, which I think is a great size for a new baby. I liked this size for a floor quilt, but also thought it was great for covering up a little one in a carseat or stroller.

Need a quick gift and want to make one of these? The top and bottom portion measure about 22" x 37" and the middle strip measures about 3" x 37". Sew those pieces together, back it with a fun print, and voila! cute little baby gift!

P.S. this design also looks great with the yellow and white stripe from Lotta Jansdotter's Bella. (Yes, I may have made up one in that colorway too!)
