Baby Blue Quilt

Remember those Sphere charm packs I showed you on Sunday?  Well, don't say I don't work fast people!  This delightful little creation is for a new customer.  Emily messaged me a couple of weeks ago and enquired about ordering a cot quilt for a friend.  We went back and forth discussing colour options, and when I showed her the Sphere by Zen Chic range, she loved it!  We edited out the yellows and dark greens, and stuck mostly with the blues, greys and the multi-colour print with a splash of yellow.  I managed to whip this baby up in a couple of days - which is good seeing as though it has to be in the post by the end of this week to make it to its destination!

I've mixed in a little white Homespun and it's bound with a gorgeous blue Homespun also.

I've incorporated a couple of the fabulous Botanics prints by Carolyn Friedlander.  They blend in beautifully!  Aurifil #2810 - turquoise blue - was pulled out to straight line quilt 1/4" either sides of each square.

And the aptly names "baby blue" homespun was chosen for the backing.

I took a number of different photos of the quilt, and as I was walking back inside popped the quilt down on the steps whilst I grabbed something - and realised the the colours really popped against the ageing concrete!  Voila!

  4. I am in love with this quilt I want one for myself !! Blue is my favourite colour and this quilts sets off the blues beautifully.

  5. Love the Sphere range, and you're right, it really does pop laid out on the concrete. I see your tag sewn into the binding. Where do you order them from, and did you design it yourself or go with one of their designs? I want to order some myself for quilts I decide to sell or donate.
