It’s such a nice change to be able to share a completed quilt with you all instead of blocks for Farmer’s Wife Sew-along. This quilt is called Sarah and it’s from Fat Quarter Shop’s latest book; Fat Quarter Baby.
Fat Quarter Baby by It’s Sew Emma is simply baby-crazy in the best way possible! Twenty crib-size quilts (and one bonus table runner!) for your bundles of joy. Packed with fresh fabrics and a variety of styles, there is something for every quilter. Great for baby shower gifts, or they can be used as small lap quilts!
I loved making this quilt because the blocks are so big and come together so easily. They also give you such a great opportunity to show off big bold prints. I used this quilt as the perfect excuse to play with Michael Miller’s “Seedling” by Thomas Paul. This fabric line made this quilt a great gender neutral baby quilt. The bold lines and graphic nature of the prints mean that it’s also a quilt that will grow with the baby and not be so obviously “baby”.
Seedling contains the most perfect stripe print for binding, don’t you think? I really love how this turned out, especially given it’s not a colour palette I would normally use.
