Alexander’s quilt

This is a sweet and quick finish that I made for a christening in our extended family. I saw some scraps on my table from previous projects that looked comfy and fresh, and I got to work.

As I worked, I fell more and more in love with the fabric combinations, light blues, soft neutrals, a tiny bit of white, and pops of citrus. The colors make it cozy enough for a nap but fun enough for a play mat.

The quilting is organic lines spaced about an inch and a half in Aurifil Light Brass. I put a pop of yellowish green in the binding and washed it for a good crinkle. (It was so fun to pull it out of the dryer and broadcast it on Instagram Stories!)

The method was fun and freeing– I used my Planned and Unplanned protocol, which I’ll be teaching at QuiltCon in February! More on that front to come, hope you’re enjoying your July.
