Baby Bunting ~~ Finish!

Another finish! This one is a small baby quilt. Well, average size: 45" x 45" is not so small. 

There's no particular reason for the quilt except that I wanted to use my new Studio dies in the Drunkard's Path design. Remember that last summer I made up some quilt kits to sew while we were on vacation? This is one. 

I sewed for a while when we spent a day resting at one of the parks in Michigan. My idea was to get as many blocks completed as possible while we were stopped but I didn't get very far before we moved on. At the next stop I wanted to work on something different. 

At least I'd gotten enough blocks together for a baby quilt, which I put together once we returned home. Last week, I quilted it and love the design. The moment I got this design while playing on the design wall, I knew it was the one. It makes me think of bunting, especially when it's turned so that the pointed corners are pointing downward. 

To quilt it, I stitched feathers in the scrappy pieces and echo quilting in the soft white pieces. I did not expect to have to make quite as many connections as I did, but in the end I'm satisfied. 

This is one pretty little quilt. I didn't worry about whether fabrics were too close--and they are in places--I just threw it together and had fun. What fun-filled scrappiness are you into this week?

Very pretty! I love the little touches of orange and yellow - like little lights amongst the bunting.

what a sweet quilt ! The colours are so bright and happy and the drunkards path shapes really keep your eye moving through the pattern. I'll have to remember this one - looks like a good scrap buster !

I love this!! You mentioned you worked on this while vacationing. Did you hand piece the blocks?!

45 x 45 is a good size. At our church we make 36" square one for newborns. They work well for car seats and strollers too, and not overwhelm baby. Yours is so pretty! Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone.
