I had intended this quilt to be for a dear friend and her new baby. But once the quilt top was done I realized that it wasn't right for her. I do love it, though and now that I made her a quilt that better matches her style, I have finally finished this one.
This quilt was made entirely of stash fabrics - front, back, and binding. The starting point was this striped print that I bought a small cut of at JoAnn's a lifetime and a half ago. I loved it then and I love it now. I decided to use my favorite application for striped fabrics and was able to get five blocks made.
From there I added some some Alexander Henry owls and some of my very favorite Moda Home dots (even though it's decorator weight, it's nearly as soft as quilting cotton and it has a lovely hand). Kona Coral, Kona Stone, and some un-named yellow and brown round out the lot. The pieced back features the same fabrics from the front and the binding finishes up what's left of my Kona Coral stash.
I love that it's gender neutral and I cannot get enough of that Kona Coral - I do foresee more of it in my near future. It is so bright and cheery that it brings a smile to my face every time. This quilt features random stippling, is hand bound, and the finished size is 39" square.
It's listed in the shop. UPDATE: Quilt has now sold.
