Brown and Blue Baby Quilt

I have had so many works-in-progress lying around over the past month or so, it’s been kind of silly.  I’ve been working on this crib quilt for a little while now, but haven’t wanted to show it until it was delivered to it’s recipient at a baby shower last Saturday. The layout was inspired by this quilt, which I loved. And it sewed-up so fast!

I’ve been collecting little bits of blues and browns for a while now and waiting for just the right project. The back is a Michael Miller Disco Dot. I love that print. Quilting in aqua blue thread by my friend, Monica.

The other fabrics are from all over the map: Riley Blake, Moda, Lakehouse, etc. And all from the stash. Nice. This is the year I am going to bust that stash! No, really. I am.

    Since I was laid off early this year, I have been using my stash – just touched 50 yards. I could see a big improvement in my stash. Now I can't wait to start working so that I can replenish.

    I would love to know how you put this all together… I have some charm packs of brown/blue and some dotted fabric kind of like your backing, and would love to try to re-create this!!
