Simple Four-patch Baby Quilt

I love to make simple quilts and let the fabric do all the work. Especially when the fabric is large-scale or busy.  I created this simple four-patch quilt to show off pieces of the Lecien Merry Bon Bon collection.  The cute, retro-inspired prints create a quilt with a very vintage nursery feel.
Adding to the vintage-y feel of this quilt, it came out of the dryer especially crinkly thanks to the linen in the Merry Bon Bon fabric. I love the finished effect. So soft and snuggly.
This quilt was made as a sample for American Quilting in Utah where I used to work.
