Welcome to my stop on the Fat Quarter Baby blog tour! This week we are celebrating the release of Fat Quarter Shop's latest book, 'Fat Quarter Baby', which is full of 20 adorable baby quilt designs.
The quilt I was assigned is called 'Ryan'. The book has 10 girl and 10 boy quilt designs, though truth be told a lot of the patterns are unisex so depending on your fabric choices can be made for a boy or a girl. I chose feminine fabrics for my quilt, so it's a girl's quilt!
Most of the fabrics I used in this quilt are from Windham Fabrics 'Nostalgia Storybook Vacation' range. Sweetest repro designs, which I have paired with a mint solid cotton.
This quilt is very beginner friendly, with large blocks, so the quilt top comes together really quickly. For quilting, I first machine quilted in the ditch between the squares, in a grid pattern. Then I added some hand-quilting around the centre of each block to add a little bit of that sweet vintage 'squishy' feel.
If you would like to see the other quilts in the book pop over to Fat Quarter Shop's blog Jolly Jabber, and also visit the other bloggers taking part in the blog tour to see their quilts. Thank you for stopping by today!
