The Sweetest Baby Quilt

In my effort to organize my sewing space, I found fabric I’d forgotten I had.

Rosewater Free Spirit Baby QuiltThis Rosewater jelly roll by Free Spirit is the perfect example. I bought this when I first started quilting a couple years ago. I even bought yardage for the back. (Surprise!) I didn’t have a plan for it, but really liked the soft colors, the shabby chic look of the prints, and  especially the price…it was a Daily Deal from Missouri Star Quilt Company, and I bought a lot of them at the time.

Since I’m still mulling over the problems I’m having with a new pattern, I decided I needed another quick project to work on. The strips were already cut, I just added the thin sashings and voila! another finish!

The backing is a floral called Garden Romance from the Rosewater line.

For batting, I used Quilter’s Dream 70/30 Cotton/Polyester blend. It is a dream to work with! This quilt is so cuddly and soft and is perfect for a little girl to snuggle up with. As you can see above, the quilting is just straight lines to keep everything cuddly soft. The binding is made from leftover jelly roll strips – I cut them in half so there would be a nice variety on this small quilt.

I love this finish and am happy to share it with you. It measures approximately 39″ x 42″. This quilt is available for sale in my Etsy shop.

I can’t wait to dig into my stash and see what else I can make without buying more fabric!

    I love those yummy soft fabrics. They make a perfect baby quilt. And the straight line quilting keeps it simple and lets those prints shine. Beth, I need to take motivation from your finishes. I’m so close to a second baby quilt finish that it’s not funny. Why am I dragging my feet??
