I already knew what fabrics I was going to use, and which pattern. Because this was a fat eighth bundle of Brambleberry Ridge, I wanted a fat eighth friendly pattern. I found this free tutorial by Samelia's Mum and decided I liked the simplicity.
Here is what the first layout looked like. I decided that it was just too small, so I added a 5.5" (unfinished) white Kona border to bulk it up.
|The colours are unusual. My husband and mom don't like the colour combination but I think it is delicate and pretty, and I've been getting lots of Instagram love, so I just hope the mom likes it!|
|Pearl Bracelets are so awesome. Did you hear that mini Pearl Bracelets are coming? I can't wait to see that scale.|
|The quilting went very smoothly and added some nice texture to this pretty little baby quilt.|
Though I'm excited that this one is almost done, I can't stop to enjoy it because more babies are coming soon! I've already pressed the green and grey intended for my next quilt!
Do you like the peachy-pink/brown combo?
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
I think your color combo looks great!ReplyDelete
I think this colour combo is great - very modern. My babies mostly lay on their quilts on the living room floor and spit up on them, so darker colours would work in our house!ReplyDelete
Did you use the Pearl Bracelet as backing? And NO, I did not hear about mini Pearl Bracelet. Honestly, I should just give up on trying not to buy fabric. It's hopeless.
I do like the peach and brown combination. Thanks for the link for the tutorial. It's a nice pattern. Would lend itself to lots of different fabrics.ReplyDelete
