Rocky Field: A Finished Quilt

To keep up my recent trend of baby quilt after baby quilt, today's Friday finish is a sweet little green and grey baby quilt made for a co-worker expecting her first child, a little boy, this March. I used a pattern from Quilty to make this sweet little quilt, the same pattern I used for Hoot earlier this year. It looks quite different with this colour scheme, a very subdued palette for a new baby boy. These are the colours of the nursery.

Here is Rocky Field, named for the stone greys and the grassy and mossy greens:

It is a relatively small quilt which is perfect when you're churning out a lot of baby quilts like I have been! Notice the Denyse Schmidt, the Quatrefoil, the Cotton+Steel? Also there is an Alison Glass print in there and some olive dots that I picked up ages ago and can't remember what line or company made it.

All of the fabrics came from my stash which is helping me keep on track to use my fabric instead of buying more.

I used a totally delightful Tim and Beck print on the back from their Bungle Jungle line. It is a bit unexpected as the front has all these non-traditional "kid" prints and then the back is bright and fun!

Because I was working from my stash I didn't have enough of the one print so I pieced a strip of Kona Artichoke along the top. I like the blocked effect.

I used straight-line quilting with white Aurafil and my walking foot. I quilted lines horizontally through each section and then a few vertical lines through the sashing only.
I can't wait to gift this to the expectant mom!
I'm quite sure the mom will love it and I'm so pleased to have made something lovely for her. She is a wonderful, kind woman and I know she will be a great mom.

  1. I love the pattern and the fabrics you chose - wonderful quilt!

  2. Still lovin' this pattern... and I like that you snuck some Kona in there for the backing. Nothing like working from one's stash!

  3. Great finish. Kudos for using from your stash.

  4. So cool Lynn! I especially like how it will please the mom with it's nursery decor worthiness and delight the little guy with those cute monkeys shenanigans!
