Bluebird Park Baby Quilt

By | July 22, 2015

I needed a project, to do today, that was quick and easy, and that wouldn’t stress me out. I didn’t want a high concentration project but rather one I could enjoy, see quick progress being made, and feel a good sense of accomplishment. Baby quilts are normally ideal for these sorts of moods.

The Bluebird Park baby quilt from Samelia’s Mum Blog (last I checked this blog was no longer active or I’d be linking) was just perfect. Easy to do yet visually very appealing with a modern edge.  I used fabrics I had; always important for a spur of the moment quilt. I used 8 fat quarters from a Sew-Sisters quilt shop monthly Bargain Hunters club fat quarter bundle rather than the fat eighth’s or layer cakes suggested in the pattern for the simple reason that’s what I had on hand. I had cut into one of the fat quarters of the Riley Blake fabric so  that fabric only appears once rather than 2 or 3 times. Which really probably will only ever concern me and no one else.

I’m going to use a solid grey as backing. Now just to see if i have any batting that’s suitable and to decide how to quilt it.

    A colorful baby quilt – baby’s going to love it. It has such a strong directional look to it, why not quilt it with lines in the opposite direction. Michelle at Let’s Make Baby Quilts would welcome your link up to her party – it’s so cute.

      Strangely enough I did diagonal quilting, but not in the opposite direction.. dang in hindsight that would have been even better
