I made myself a dress a couple of weeks ago out of this lovely polka dotted chambray that I found at JoAnns Fabric store. This fabric was so lovely that I wanted to use the scraps right away. Making a baby quilt out of the chambray wasn't easy, as the fabric is more stretchy than a typical cotton, so it was a beast to work with, but I think it worked out really well.
I used hot pink Kona Cotton to highlight the little dots in the chambray and the striped fabric is gray stripped seersucker. Between the chambray and the seersucker, the quilt has a lot of yummy texture to it, which babies love. The hot pink gives the quilt a good "pow" moment. Quilting this one was a beast and I hate to admit it, but there was a lot of seam ripping. However, the end product is quite lovely.
The Kona was purchased at a cute quilt store in Shipshiwanna, Indiana. The seersucker can be found here . The baby blanket was machine quilted by me, but I did the binding by hand. I just love me some hand binding. There is something very soothing about that part of quilt making. The back of the quilt is just some gray Kona and really simple.
It turned out pretty good, didn't it. It's in my shop now, if you are interested.
Have a great day!
