Navy & Lime HST Baby Quilt


I've just finished my second half square triangle baby quilt of 2014. I'm finding that with quilts, I am increasingly drawn to simpler colour schemes and simpler patterns.

I used to buy quite varied prints and then I found I didn't use them as much as dots, checks and stripes. This quilt is a classic example of how pairing those kind of patterns can look so clean and modern.

I've also noticed my eye has improved a lot since I started my Graphic Design degree. Nothing I can exactly put my finger on, but I'm bolder with colour choices and happier with the results.


The chevron/stripe binding is everywhere at the moment and this is actually the first time I have done it. I love the result though, whether original or not!


I backed the quilt with minky again. It's expensive (I want to weep when I see American quilters talking about buying it for $8 a metre!) but it makes the quilt feel so snuggly and luxurious.

I sent it off to its new home on Monday, rather reluctantly I have to admit as this is one I would have happily hung on to.
