Finish it up Friday!

Quilt stats

Name:  Baby Blue
Design:  4" squares
Size:  36" by 42"
Fabric: Stash fabrics including some prints from Sweetwater's reunion line, Camille's Happy Go Lucky and even some Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air, bound in Kona Ash, backed in stash flannelette 
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white

After selling a baby boy quilt in the last little while, I needed to get another classic baby boy quilt into the laundry basket inventory, just in case.  I went completely classic with this one.  Baby Blue.  Fresh boy colours with a splash of Kona Ash and Bahama Blue.  The owl print ran the show as the "boss fabric" and I added things from there.  I was happy to find the flannelette print in the right blue in the wall of fabric! 

I used my current favourite method of quilting... a fairly dense grid of stitching on either side of each square in my favourite thread, Aurifil 50wt in white.  The quilting looks so great on the back!  I bound the quilt in Kona Ash.  Perfect!  Here is is on the barn wall and ready to go into the laundry basket until a baby says, "Hey, that's mine!"

Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday!
