White Baby Quilt, WIP

I was left with a small stack of white and cream leftovers after the wedding quilt a few weeks ago.  I had some advice early on that I would have great success if I made white quilts for babies, I think I might have rolled my eyes. But I decided to use up the leftovers and throw in this lovely ducky fabric (that seems to match nothing else in the universe) and see what happens. The sad truth is I have baby quilts in 2 different stores and etsy right now, and none of them selling. So what harm would one more be, right?

Yellow and Green, Bento Box Variation for Baby

I finished the commissioned quilt last night and just finished the indoor photo shoot because it is raining. Too bad the world series can’t move inside! There is a lot of excitement in Philly is about the possible rain cancellation today. Anyway, the quilt->


What is that white ribbon doing in the middle two squares?  I ran so disastrously low on that bird fabric that the ribbon fudged me the extra inch I needed. I should have added some more on the border  to make it look a little more involved, such is the problem with 20/20 hindsight.


I love the minke on the back. I should say I love the minke now that I learned how to use it. I used some Heat -n- Bond lite to baste the minke to the batting. I made a disaster of a couple other projects with minke because it has a terrible tendency to stretch and bunch and this eliminated the problem completely. I had some early moments of anxiety because it felt like there was a sheet of crinkly newspaper in the quilt before I washed it. But a hot wash and a tumble in the dryer has it feeling like a soft cozy quilt.

Bento Box Variation Squares

From what I can tell, a true bento box square would be 8 fabrics per square but I made a variation for my baby quilts with only 5 prints . Above is the start for the commissioned yellow and green baby quilt. I feel like I have searched everywhere for yellow and green prints that are not flowers (or gingham, I kinda hate gingham) and come up with the above, which are still pretty floral, Hopefully they are abstract enough that the recipient will not think it girly…
