I'm finally getting around to posting about this little quilt, even though it was finished and given away at the beginning of the month.
Two good friends from college are having a baby and aren't finding out the gender - which usually drives me insane when making quilts - but I decided to base the quilt off of a description of their nursery, which I was told is a beachy theme with blues, aquas, and some hints of orange.
Each of the little squares is 2", which I first strip pieced in threes, then sewed into little nine patches. Then I sewed four nine patches into larger blocks, then pieced everything together and added the tan border, which reminded me of the sea floor.
I used the same fabric for the backing, which is actually a tablecloth that I picked up on clearance at Target about a year ago. I free motion quilted it with a loopy pattern that traveled across each of the rows.
I hope this baby knows how special it will be since I cut into some of my precious Heather Ross fabric for this quilt!
