Another Friday, another installment in the baby quilt marathon…
This time, I’ve wrapped up the 3rd baby quilt, which is actually for the first baby girl, the one who was born over the summer. Her dad teaches science and math, and science is his true passion. (I learned this on back to school night). This was the one with tie dyed blocks in 2 different color ways. Putting them together into a Modern Plus Quilt seemed like an excellent idea- both thematically as plusses for a math teacher sounded cute, and stylistically, because I could mix up the colors.
You can see a close up of the kids’ blocks above. I actually had a lot of fun playing with patterns and fabrics to make them work in the same project. It is quite a collection of scraps and bits from all my years of quilting. My favorite kind of quilt!
I picked the blue Kaffe Fassett polka dot for the binding for a few reasons- it was bold enough to tie the entire thing together, and it matched the amazing backing fabric. I picked up the backing fabric before I even started the quilt. And it doesn’t really match the front, but when you see it, you’ll know why I HAD to use it.
Yup, it’s science fabric- soft, sweet science flannel fabric. It’s perfect! And that binding ties it all together.
I did my super simple crosshatch quilting. It is fast, and it works so well with this design. The quilt has been dropped off at school, but it won’t be distributed just yet. The thought right now is to finish the final one, and present the pair together.
3 down, one more to go.
