Here is my latest baby quilt made for one of Suzi's friends who will have wee laddie in December. It's made from Saffron Craig fabric and is all organic cotton. I have to say I enjoy doing non-traditional baby quilts like this one. It provided a huge challenge as most of the coordinated fabric set consisted of highly dominant patterns. Even the smaller flower prints seemed really dominant to me.
In the end I decided to make strips and join them all together. The strips would "tone down" or reduce the effects some of the dominants like the huge spot and I included two solids, a medium grey and an ordinary unbleached calico. I put "dollops" of the solids in each strip. It worked for me and Suzi's friend loves it. The colours are a deep red-purple a lighter red-purple, grey, cream and acid green. It's never difficult to do a baby quilt in bright colours or use coordinated baby fabrics but these more unusual fabrics designed by a well-known Australian designer were a definite challenge. I think the border in the "fence post" type print work well.
