A Bright Baby Quilt

Looking for a quick baby quilt finish?



I just finished this cutie and the top went together in just a couple hours.



I grabbed a bunch of odd solid chunks in a rainbow of colors and cut them into half hexies using my Hex n More ruler.



I had this playful fabric that I had a bunch of long strips leftover from the trimming of a previous quilt's backing.  I cut them up into a uniform width (and even had enough to cut some binding strips).



I quilted a combination of serpentine, straight and looped lines for the quilting.  I used the serpentine in the floral and in the ditch area. The loopy and straight lines in the solids just adds some fun.





I ended up piecing three large leftover pieces of a lime green fabric to make a backing for this quilt.  I was able to match the print so you barely see the seam lines.




I love that all of this quilt was made from the leftovers from previous quilts. 
It feels good to move these bits out of my sewing room and create something so cute.

 I am going to have to dig around and see what else I can find!

  11. What a cheery way to move some scraps along. And a reminder that every quilt doesn't have to have a thousand little pieces.

    Also seeing this has reminded me I have heaps of the half hexagons from a previous quilt - I have been pondering on how to use them!!

  15. What a fun, happy baby quilt you've created! I'd enjoy wrapping myself up in that, but I'm afraid I wouldn't fit. Drats! Great use of the solids to match your strips.
