scrappy postage stamp baby quilt

A few weeks ago I saw some scrappy 9 patch blocks start to pop up on Instagram (check out #scrappypostagestampQAL).  Since I am always looking for a way to use up scraps, I thought I'd join in.  After I posted my first blocks a friend commented that she really liked them.  Since I know that this friend is expecting a baby girl (she already has 3 boys) I thought I'd make them into a baby quilt for her.

I tried to stick with a little bit of a color scheme even though the quilt is scrappy and I used lots of pinks and peaches and corals with some purples and navies and blacks and greens.  Pretty much all the colors actually. But I think it turned out pretty fun.

Since this is going to a baby who lives in a place with cold winters and she is going to be born in February, I backed the quilt with AMH flannel.  My favorite.

The sashing is a Robert Kaufman white on white Spot On print and it so wonderful and soft and the binding is a Cotton + Steel basic.  

Finished size: 38" x 46".  The squares and sashing are all 2" finished.

  2. So pretty! How do your flannel backs do with regular washing. I've only backed a Christmas quilt in it so I don't know. Does it pill much? I'm thinking of using flannel on the kiddos quilts. :)

    Erica, this is really beautiful.
    A lot of people do not like putting black in a baby quilt, but actually baby's vision is still very undeveloped and they respond well to black and white. This quilt is so pretty. This looks easy and fun. I think I could do this. Would you make a tutorial about the size of the sashing and such?
    It is such a sweet gift for your friend.
