Ice Cream Baby Quilt

January 11, 2015

When I found out my brother in laws cousins were expecting a baby I was incredibly excited for them!  I may have been slightly more excited when I found out they were expecting a girl.  As I have four nephews I don't get to sew girly things very often.

When planning this quilt I was inspired by this mini quilt by Heather from Quilt Story.  I fell head over heels in love with it when I saw it on Instagram. 

Even though I had never tried paper piecing before following this tutorial from Sew We Quilt I found it rather straight forward.  Even with the mess it left on the floor of my sewing room.

I enlarged the blocks to a percentage I can't quite remember.  The quilt ended up quite a nice baby size.  The fabrics are mostly scrappy some Bonnie and Camille, Sweetwater, Michael Miller and Spotlight.  The main fabric is of course Ombre by V and Co for Moda.
I purchased the backing from East Coast Fabrics (My favourite fabric store, very thankful I live an hour from the nearest one!).

All rolled up and ready to gift next week!

The binding fabric was from Spotlight, bought on a whim because it was perfect for binding.
Can't wait to see their reaction.
