Modern Baby Quilt in Solids


You probably know that I have been working on yellow and gray quilts for that last month, but this was the first one that started it all.  It's made from Kona Cotton.  I used Citurs, Shadow, Medium Gray, Pepper, and White.  I am really loving the Pepper instead of the Black. I used the Accuquilt again to cut the HSTs.


I quilted it with straight lines on my longarm using a ruler.  Yes, I could have quilted it so much faster with a meander, but this quilt seemed too modern for meandering.  It was begging for straight lines.  I tried to ignore it, but it won the battle!


I found this cute gray and yellow print for the back.  The binding is the Medium Gray. So you'll be glad to know the last gray and yellow is ready to be quilted, so this obsession is almost over! Thanks for putting up with me!

  6. Lovely, and you chose the perfect backing. You are right in your choice of quilting, it works much better than a meander.
