Little One is finally done and ready to send off to two lovely expecting parents! They are so excited about the summer arrival of their first child and are waiting to be surprised about the gender.
This quilt is soft, sweet, and ready for crib cuddles, picnics in the sunshine or playtime on the floor. I wanted to keep it as cuddly as possible, so kept the quilting to a minimum with some diagonal lines on either side of the houndstooths.
But to add a few extra special touches, I did a little hand quilting around some of the fussy cut bunnies and texts using some grey perle cotton. It was quick and easy to do and I really like the look of the large chunky stitches!
I typically used Warm & Natural batting but wanted something softer with a better drape, so tried a Pellon bamboo & cotton mix this time around. I like the results and will definitely use it again!
When I originally was pulling fabric for this quilt, I included a darker green from the Littlest line. But when it came time to cut, it just read too dark to blend nicely with all the other soothing colors. It does however make a fabulous contrasting binding.
The backing is a grey and yellow flannel print and it adds a gorgeous warmth and softness to the quilt.
Since our family lives overseas and we won't get to see them in person as often as we'd like, I hope this quilt conveys all our love and well wishes for this growing family in their parenting journey ahead!
