Another quilt is in the books. An Ombre Baby Quilt to be exact :) I tried to count and I think from start to finish, totally handmade this is quilt number 8… I have 4 more quilt tops ready to go but those don’t count haha. Another one of the Coyote girls had a baby… also bringing our number to 8 Cubs. It’s a tradition for all of the Cubs to get a blanket or quilt made by me!
I wanted really big squares for this quilt and thought about doing a rainbow ombre but when I started looking around I just fell in love with the blues and greens. I have never used a precut fabric stack before but let me tell you I might have been converted. It makes it so easy. I bought THIS Kona Solids Layer Cake. The colors and the fabric are amazing.
To be honest, I should have probably quilted it closer together but I just love how big the squares are so I didn’t want to distract from that. I do have a few puckers in a few spots but thats the beauty of a handmade quilt right? “Real” quilters are amazing and talented and I will stay in the quilter wanna be category until I get a little more prefect… until then I will give all the babies my imperfect quilts!
I used a a white cotton fabric on the back that had flocked little polkadots… so cute! I was trying to venture out past my white or black and white striped binding but the white looked too pretty, maybe next time. I also added a little TaylorMade tag :)
