Baby Quilt Finished!

I finally finished a baby quilt for my son’s 1st/2nd grade teacher. The baby was born over a month ago, but that’s the way sewing goes around here. Since work ended in late May and school ended in mid-June, I’ve had a little more time to squeeze in some sewing.

The pattern is Elizabeth Hartman‘s New Wave Quilt. The fabrics are from Sarah Watt’s Timber & Leaf collection for Blend Fabrics. I fell in love with this collection and knew it would be perfect for this family. Even though there’s a lot of fox fabric out there, I think this collection has the cutest one! For the stripes in between the prints, I used Kona Snow and for the binding I used the tiny stripe in aqua from Locally Grown by Marisa and Creative Thursday for Andover Fabrics.

Here’s a picture of the back of the quilt. I was hoping to use one solid piece of the fawn fabric and not do a pieced back, but I found a flaw in the fabric and needed to cut it off. Unfortunately, this print is hard to find and I could not find enough yardage at a reasonable price. So, I added a few other prints along the side.

For Hank Amos

I just made a simple embroidered label for the back. I have been wanting to practice embroidery and hope to bring some along to keep my hands busy on our road trip later this summer.

Here’s a full view of the quilt. Due to my fear of free motion quilting on a gift project intended for someone else and not just for me, I chose to just do some straight quilting along the waves.  I think it turned out pretty well. But I would like to be a little more experimental on some upcoming projects.
