Well, well! Every year around this time I start exclaiming because it’s suddenly green and pretty outside – perfect for taking photos of quilts, but then I find myself without any quilts to photograph because it’s too nice outside to be inside sewing… I have to keep reminding myself that there will be time for quilting again, and until then, I’ve been satisfying myself with little bits of simple patchwork. I’ve made a number of these kinds of baby quilts, and luckily I never seem to tire of them. I love the mix of solids and Liberty prints, and it’s always fun to be able to find a few other prints that coordinate (sometimes I feel it can be hard to pair Liberty with any other prints).
I finished this one up with a great Nani Iro double gauze print on the back. I almost couldn’t believe how well it paired with all those prints on the front (you’ll have to take my word for it though, as it seems I failed to get a photo!). It’s quilted with simple straight lines on either side of all the seams, and finished up with a fun striped binding. I think I say this every time, but I sure wish it was more adult-sized!
I have fabrics picked out for another one in another set of colors, but I’m also feeling tempted to make another all Liberty patchwork quilt… I can’t quite pull the trigger though, as I realize that two bed sized Liberty patchwork quilts might not be necessary!
