It has been 15 months since I’ve pieced a quilt top. A new niece will be coming into the world this winter and I’ve had it in the back of my head that I wanted to make her a baby quilt. Saturday morning I made what I thought would be a half-hearted attempt to pull fabric for the quilt, ended up destashing nearly 12 pounds of fabric, and then spent the rest of the morning cutting the pieces for this quilt top.
The inspiration came from these quilts in the low volume QAL. Of course, there isn’t anything low volume about the fabrics I ended up using, but I do think they are suitably pastel for a baby quilt. And I’m thrilled to be inspired to sew again.
