The top for this quilt was made as part of the Disappearing 9-Patch quilt-along at The Crafty Quilter back in June. The fabrics I used were the "Inner Light Gradations" line by Debra Lunn & Michael Mrowka for Timeless Treasures. I've had this collection of fabrics sitting on my shelf for many years--time to use some of it up!
The quilt top came together very quickly. I love using a simple pattern that really shows off the beautiful fabric. I found the perfect tie-dye flannel to use for the backing. Flannel is always my first choice for backing a baby quilt.
I kept the quilting very simple, just stitch-in-the-ditch along all the seams. It was bound in the same black fabric as the contrast in the piecing. The quilt measured 39.5" x 48" before washing, then shrank up to 38.75" x 46.5" after it was washed and dried.
The reason I hadn't shared photos of the quilt earlier is because it was a gift for my niece's new baby boy, and I wanted to wait until they had received the quilt before posting. Here is Lucas enjoying his new quilt!
I'm linking up with Let's Make Baby Quilts at Michelle's Romantic Tangle, Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Finished or Not Friday at Alycia Quilts, and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at soscrappy (even though this quilt isn't scrappy.)
