My First Quilt Finish of the Year!

Simple baby quilts are just the best!!

This one was a request from friends of friends. It is made up of sixty four 5" finished squares of organic cotton prints taken from my stash. Oddments left over from previous projects.

I was careful to arrange them so they faced all different directions.
I love those animals!

The backing is not organic, but it picks out the orange and deep turquoise colours quite nicely I think.

I debated how to quilt it for quite a while. I wanted something modern, and I didn't want to quilt too heavily. I wanted it to stay nice and soft and drapey. In the end I settled on a chevron pattern with 1" spacing.

I made 2 bibs and 2 burp cloths to match. Again made with organic cotton. The towelling backing is a mixture of bamboo and organic cotton, which I have used before and I know dries quickly. Need to keep these items practical as well as decorative!

I have a lot of projects on the go at the moment, but they're all long term, slow sewing things. It was nice to have a quick finish!
