It had been quite some time since I worked on a quilt. But going through my leftover fabrics I kept putting grey, green and yellow together thinking this might be ideal for a gender neutral little quilt. So I put strips of fabric together, then turned them into rows and sewed them all up. I framed them with a greenish dotted fabric and loved what I ended up with.
I used some grey and blue dotted fabric for the back and I was in luck as the fabric just covered the width of the blanket. Time or lack there of, meant I quilted this one by machine and not by hand. Just straight lines to reinforce the clean lines of the rows of patchwork.
Every time I see it, it makes me smile. The yellow just turns it all so cheerful and there are many cute little prints in there. All in all, this will be the perfect bedding for a little one to come. And best of all, it happens to suit my latest project, a super easy knitted blanket, perfectly. (Jersey Knit Quilt – Himiko)
