Oh I love this cute quilt! I’ve been wanting to update my Stack n’ Whack block tutorial for awhile now…and last week I started making blocks and I just couldn’t stop!
The panda print is from the line Urban Zoologie from Robert Kaufman, and it goes great with a punch of pink and black. I love using one fun novelty print in a quilt with good basics and solids…it keeps it fun but still modern and clean looking.
Jane will be 2 next month and I’m not okay with it. How did I have her TWO years ago already??!!
Every day after the big kids get on the bus, she chooses the same twirly dress to wear, and she twirls and sings in my empty bathtub while I take a quick shower. It’s my favorite part of the morning. Then she usually goes through all of my drawers and empties out all of my makeup and bosses me around. ;)
I did minimal quilting this time, as I usually do on my baby/crib quilts. I never want the crib quilts to be too stiff, and just a little straight line quilting around each of the blocks and some of the center squares was just enough for this one. The backing is from Wallflowers, my first line of fabric for Windham, and I’m not sure what the binding fabric is.
I machine bound it with the method in this tutorial.
I’ll post a tutorial for how to make this quilt in the coming days. It’s one of my very favorite ways to make a quilt…and the best for beginners!
