and let me tell you a crib size quilt is much easier than a twin size!
When I was looking for a pattern for my son’s quilt,
I saw this pattern Vintage Baby Throw and loved it!
I had to try it out.
Most of the fabrics I used are from Pure by Sweetwater for Moda.
This pattern calls for a ton of different fabrics so I added some from other lines.
I used Flannel Brown Cowboy Dots from
Wanna Be A Cowboy 2 by Riley Blake.
I also used Houndstooth from Man’s Best Friend by Henry Glass.
I supplemented the quilt with some Brown Minky Puff Dot fabric (I have no idea what it’s really called :)) that I’ve had forever.
I love looking at a beautiful pile of fabric almost as much as a finished project.
Here is the quilt top all finished!
I love how the colors turned out!
Of course I have a little dilemma.
I originally planned on backing the quilt with the brown minky dot fabric, but after using it in the top, I am not sure I really want to sew with it, much less quilt through it. I am going to quilt along the lines of the quilt, so I am guessing with the stretchiness of the minky dot fabric, it might not go so well.
So what do you think?
Should I just back the quilt with the brown minky dot fabric?
Or should I back the fabric with Latte Pixie from
Pure by Sweetwater for Moda?
