This baby quilt was like an obsession for me over the past week. A big reason for making this is I wanted to know if I could handle making a queen size - templates scare me - but I am happy to say that I really enjoyed making this and I plan to attempt a larger version in the future.
I didn't cut the pieced feather parts exactly right but I am still happy with how it came out and I didn't want to waste some of my most favorite bits of fabric by redoing them. Sometimes I get a little too confident when I am following a pattern and I don't study it closely enough.
This pattern is just so striking - I really, really like it! I also continue to be smitten with one of my favorite color combinations: red, pink, and aqua (the chocolate brown addition helps it not to be so sickeningly sweet, don't you think?) This was all made from stash except for the Kona Espresso 1/4 yard I needed for the stems.
If you are considering making this pattern - please be warned that I think the background fabric requirements are quite "generous." The pattern calls for two yards but I think I used a little less than one. The queen size calls for 8 1/4 yards - and that's enough to back the quilt - so I am sure that is a bit too much.
I am linking this up at the Festival of Strings at Stitched in Color. Be sure to check out everyone else's beautiful creations:
