Improv Neutrals Baby Quilt
This quilt is one of my very favorites! Inspired by a long-time flickr favorite of mine, I used a mix of neutrals with bright centers in improvised log cabin blocks.
I also added one thin charcoal bar to each block and tried to rotate the blocks as I decided what should go where.
I've had the blocks for quite some time, and intended to make a much larger quilt with it, but I was in a "use it or lose it" kind of mood and decided to stitch them up. In no time, I had a baby quilt top that measures about 36" x 48".
It is quilted with varying widths of straight horizontal lines, bound with a Joel Dewberry True Colors herringbone in turquoise, and backed with a simple gray solid. It seems like I've been waiting YEARS to bind something with one of these prints, and I just love how it turned out.
