Quilt in Aqua and Ruby

quilt 3

I had never tried this pattern before, but thought it turned out just lovely for this baby quilt I gifted recently. 


I had been eyeing this fabric (Ruby from Moda) for a long time and finally found the perfect project to use it on!  I mixed in a few additional fabrics of my own.  I like to use fabrics that coordinate, but aren’t tooooo machy machy.

It wasn’t part of my original plan to include the appliqué hearts, but I think It was just what the quilt needed.  I have never used a blanket stitch to appliqué on a quilt before, but I think I turned out really cute!  It seemed to fit the overall feel of the piece. 

Also, I learned a fabulous little trick.  Did you know that you can use used drier sheets instead of interfacing?  I decided to try it out in a pinch, and it worked beautifully!  It even made the quilt smell really nice and fresh. 

I should have snapped a picture of the cute baby on the cute quilt… but alas. 

Next time for sure :).
