deep blue sea baby quilt

A while back (more than 2 years actually) I took Rachel's Curves class and made this Scallop Quilt.  It is still one of my favorite projects and I have wanted to try something similar.  But I had no idea how to make templates for my own quilt until I started using EQ7 recently.

I knew I wanted to use some of my favorite blue Kona colors, but I mostly had darker blues in stash so I ordered a few lighter options.  But then they didn't arrive labeled so I am not sure what the 3rd color from the top is (oops).  I think it might be Azure I was wrong, it's Capri!  The others are Navy, Celestial, Cyan, Aqua, and Sky.  I really need to get a Kona card.

I was surprised how quickly the quilt top came together.  It has curves, but they are pretty big and wide and not difficult at all.  If there is any interest I might post a tutorial next week so let me know. The tutorial is available here.

I quilted it with lots of wavy lines.  it gave the quilt a nice texture and I liked how it gave it an ocean-y look.

Since I posted about baby boy quilts they have been on my mind.  So here is another idea to add to my list for baby showers, especially since this one is pretty quick.

The backing fabric is an Ann Kelle Remix print.  I love the Remix prints.

Since I don't have any upcoming baby showers I am adding this one to my shop.  You can find it here.

Finished size: 38" x 48"

I also just wanted to plug Rachel's classes because I loved taking her Curves class so much.  She is currently offering an Angled class, which looks so fun.  She is great and I highly recommend her classes!

  9. I like it - I like how the colors flow, and it looks like it could be beginner friendly intro to curve sewing (maybe? hopefully? - I don't know much about curves) and if so, I'd be interested in a tutorial.

  17. Fabulous quilt -I love everything you did with it! I just have to make myself take the plunge and try some curves. BTW, I took Rachel's Color Intensive class this year and it was so much fun. I wonder if she'll offer the curves class again?

  21. The quilt is adorable. Was Rachel's class an online class? I think I've seen that she does have online classes? I'm always looking for something a little different. Each month this year I've been doing a 5 minute education segment at my guild about something related to quilting. This would be something interesting to introduce to the group. I just joined the programs committee last month due to opening. So, I don't plan to continue with the education segment next year. I need to watch my schedule. I needed to get out of the house and volunteer after I lost my husband a year ago in July and now I'm becoming almost too busy for my health issues. I love the quilt and the quilting on it is great. To practice quilting was one of my goals for the year that has fallen through the cracks. I've had other goals appear automagically on my list though. Thanks for the wonderful post.

  22. It's such a beautiful quilt, and I really love the wavy line quilting. I've been looking at EQ7 recently, is it user friendly? I may have to ask Father Christmas for it!

  25. I'd be interested in a tutorial as well. I'd love to know if it was hard to match those curvy points ! It looks hard and you have done a terrific job of matching. The color choices and the quilting all together make it just beautiful !
