finished out to sea wonky star baby quilt

I really, really love Sarah Jane's Out to Sea fabric line.  It is probably one of my favorite collections ever.  So when I was contemplating a quilt for my sister's new baby (due in April) this was the obvious choice.

A wonky star quilt like this has been on my to-make list for a while. Each of the little squares was three inches which created blocks that are 8" unfinished. I was very heavily inspired by these beautiful quilts: here and here.  

My little assistant is sick and the weather outside was kind of yucky (cloudy + smoggy haze) so these pictures took quite a bit of bribery.

I had planned to use this pink map print for the entire backing but I didn't quite have enough.  My daughter declared that she needs a pillow made out of this print so I guess it's a good thing I have some leftover :)

I am leaving next Tuesday to visit my family so I get to hand deliver this one.  That leaves me entire week to work on my Maple Leaf Rag quilt and hopefully finish the quilt top before I leave.  I am excited to pull it back out!

  3. Such a sweet quilt Erica! The back is as lovely as the front with that map print, and the striped binding is just perfect. I am a huge fan of this fabric line too, and have a fat quarter bundle in each of the girly colourways just sitting in my stash. Must get it out and make something soon!
