My sister-in-law had a baby girl last week on my mother-in-law's birthday - how cool is that?! I made this quilt for her and, fortunately, gave it to her the Sunday before. Talk about good timing!
I had been going back and forth trying to decide what fabrics to use for baby Annie's quilt for quite some time. Then, when I saw Sarah Jane's Out to Sea collection, I knew I had to have it. See, my sister-in-law is a huge fan of Sarah Jane. The colors in the deep sea jewel colorway were perfect too!
I thought it would be fun to do equilateral triangles. I cut 6" strips of fabric and then sub-cut the triangles by rotating my ruler, using the 60 degree mark.
For the back, I used some of the leftover triangles as well as the pirate girls print.
I did straight-line quilting on each side of the seam lines on the diagonal, giving it a diamond look on the back.
For the binding, I used the Water Chevron print in Bloom from the same colorway.
The quilt measures approximately 42"x48".
Welcome, baby Annie! We're so glad you've come to join our family!
