I decided to do a log cabin quilt with lots of blues and greens. The fabrics are mostly solids, with a few of Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelets prints mixed in because they are just the best colors. Plus they coordinated with the Natural History print that I used on the back.
I love this gorgeous dinosaur print and I used the colors as inspiration for the quilt top.
I did something a little different for this quilt; I used double gauze as the binding. This idea really started because it was the only fabric that I had that was the exact color that I wanted for the binding, but it ended being (I think) a great, soft way to finish off a quilt for a brand new baby.
For the batting I decided to use bamboo, since it drapes really nicely and I thought that all of the seams in the quilt might make it a little stiff. I love how the bamboo turned out! So soft.
I normally photograph quilts before washing them, but my dog had other plans and there was a dog print that needed to be removed from this quilt before it was gifted. (Oops! Sorry Richard and Betsey!) Luckily the dog print came out in the wash.
Finished size: 36" x 45"
