Sleep Tight Baby Quilt

A few weeks ago, this box of fabric came in the mail from Culcita Box. I put it on my shelf as a motivation.  There were a lot of things on my to do list that I wasn't super excited about, so I decided that when I finished all of those things, I could make a quilt with the Sleep Tight fabrics.

Once all of the boxes in the garage were (pretty much) unpacked, I put some photos on the wall, and I sent my new pattern off to my pattern testers, I got to play with these fabrics.

I knew that I wanted to keep it simple and I wanted to keep as many of the images from the Toys print as intact as possible.  I was just working with a fat quarter, but I was still able to get six of them.  They are so cute!

This collection has such a great variety of grays, they have just enough contrast with each other.  And I love the detail that went into the fabrics.

I backed the quilt with this Melody Miller Disco Fruit print that I picked up from the FabricCadabra sale (only $5.25/yard!).

And bound it with a black solid.  The quilt is now available in my Etsy shop.

  1. What a cute quilt! My favorite are those fun images or maybe the pops of lime green. Well, I like the black binding a bit much, too. This might be an especially cool quilt for a little one.
