17 Briar Rose Baby Quilt.

1.17.2014

Two blog posts in a row!  I wanted to share this quilt I made recently for one of my best friends who is having a baby girl.

It's an hourglass quilt made of Briar Rose and some pretty Cotton Couture solids.  I used a polka dot linen from my friend Anna for the background fabric and I love how sweet and girly it turned out.


The quilting is simple, just straight lines outlining the shape of each block.  I wanted to make sure all the seams were quilted since I was using linen and cotton together.  I did prewash the linen as well just in case.

The backing is one of my favorite prints from Briar Rose.  I just love those little strawberries!
It's bound in a purple gingham print, which I thought coordinated perfectly.  Makes it feel like a little picnic blanket.
It passed the Jackson quilt test, and I gave it to my friend at her baby shower.  Can't wait to see her little one wrapped up in it very soon!

  4. Love the baby quilt, but I noticed the gray quilt on your bed. Did you make that? If so, do you have a blog post about it and is it done like a rag quilt? This would look great in our master bedroom. TIA!

  5. I love that you paired it with the grey dot. While the whole line of briar rose is not my favorite all together, I think the grey helps ground the prints a bit. Very nice!

  11. This is one of my "go to" patterns for baby quilts. Always timeless and so many fabrics look great in it. I will have to try the linen, it looks wonderful. I quilt them same way Holly and just love that little pinwheel that gets highlighted at the block intersections!
