The Tabby Road Betty Baby Quilt

The April Culcita Box fabrics were so much fun to sew with. I struggled a little with what I wanted to make with them and ended up making two different quilts (I am hand quilting the second one, it won't be done for a bit).  But I do have the first one to share with you today.

Forgive the upside down quilt. I wanted a pattern that would show off the fabrics and not cut them to tiny pieces.  I also really wanted to make a baby quilt with them because they are so bright and happy.

In order to make the Betty Quilt pattern FQ friendly, I made my blocks slightly smaller.  It worked out perfectly and just made the quilt slightly smaller.

Since the collection is so colorful, I knew that I didn't want to use white or gray as the background color.  I took a small risk and with Kona Ice Frappe.  It's not crazy colorful, but I like how it works with the fabrics in the collection.

Once the quilt was quilted and ready to be bound, I ditched my plan to use dark gray as the binding and took another risk.  This is Kona Chartreuse.

There were a couple prints in my stash that probably would have worked for the backing, but I didn't think they did Tabby Road justice so I picked up this Disco Kitty print from Lark Cottons. If you have never ordered from this shop, the owner (Heather) cuts the fabrics nicely on-grain with a pinked edge. I always appreciate the care she puts into my orders.

This quilt is now listed in my Etsy shop.

Finished size: 35" x 42"

  2. So adorable! I bought some of those fabrics to make my daughter a dress but I think it might be a little too crazy. But I love it in a quilt. (And I'm going to have to buy your pattern just to give you a better review!)
