Color:FULL Inspired Baby Quilt

I finally finished my first quilt of the year.  I started this one on a whim after I miscalculated the backing that I needed for my Scrappy Kaleidoscope Quilt and had to re-order.  Oops.

But sometimes the on a whim projects are the best anyway because they seem like they don't happen often enough.  If you are familiar with Jennifer Sampou's Color:FULL collection you might notice that I didn't actually use any of the prints from the collection in the quilt top.  Since I only have a couple of the prints (something that needs to change!) I saved it for the backing and binding.

All of the colors in the quilt top are inspired by my favorite print from the collection, which I also used for the backing.

The binding is another Jennifer Sampou print from her Studio Stash Yarn Dyes collection.  It is a really pretty and bright reddish pink with some light yellow stitching in it.  

I quilted it in a cross hatch that kind of reminded me of the backing print.

This one is now listed in my shop.

Finished size: 40" x 48"

  13. OMGosh I love this quilt! I'm not even a pink fan. There's something about a simple patchwork design that just makes me happy though. I love how you used a more traditional design and made it bright and fun with modern colorful fabrics.
