Navy and Green Crib Quilt + pattern

I started this quilt a few months ago. I finished the quilt a while ago, but haven't blogged about it until I finished the pattern as well.  Pattern writing just seems to take a while for me. I think because regular life takes precedence. But the day has finally come so I'm finally ready to share the quilt too!
This quilt is for another cute little nephew.  His room is navy and green so I started pulling all the navy, blue, and green fabrics from my stash collection and then I stared at them for a while, trying to decide on the perfect design. It took me way too long to decide what to make, but I think it was worth it in the end. I was so happy with the finished result!  It was so much fun to work with this color palette. Kind of prep-school classic.  I have a thing for Navy blue - always looks sharp.
I am doubly proud of this one because I actually quilted the whole thing myself as well.  I put a green check (the one in the triangle on the bottom right) on the back.  I'm happy to report that the quilt was lovingly received. And now, I want to make another one to keep. ;)


The pattern is now available in my pattern shop and from Etsy. The pattern comes with instructions for the crib size like I made or a Twin size version. (I know there are a few of you who have been waiting for me to finish. Thanks so much for your patience.)

  16. Awesome. It looks great, as all you stuff does. I think this one is my favorite. I am so glad the pattern is finished. I have been really excited for it. The quilt was beautiful when I saw it at the Sewing Summit and its awesome in it's finished form. Good job on the quilting. That part is always a little stressful for me.
