Posy Squared

I heart this fabric.
I spent my whole childhood packing around bunnies and chickens…dressing them up and pretending they were my babies…so this fabric was irresistibly cute.
When you see the pinks alone they look like they would clash…but when they are together in the quilt they work perfectly.
I made this quilt with 2 charm packs of Posy by Aneela Hoey for Moda, 3 coordinating solids (Tea Rose, Green, and Bunny Hill Pink Bella Solids) and a Riley Blake Green Herringbone that matched perfectly.  The solids help the prints stand out a bit.
The quilt is a Disappearing 9 Patch (tutorial here).
  To make a 38″ x 46″ crib quilt like this one you’ll need to start with 99 – 5″ squares.  Sew the 5″ squares into 11 – 9 patches.  Then after cutting the 9 patches in half each way you’ll use 42 blocks, laid out in 7 rows of 6 blocks each.
The backing is this adorable light blue print (the color in the pic is horrible!) and the binding is the coordinating pink stripe from the collection.
Just writing this post has me wishing for Spring!

    So pretty! I absolutely love the backing!!!

  26. themissymom February 14, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    Very pretty. I am so slow, however. I always look and think, "I really like that". Turns out to be disappearing 9 patch every time!

  27. lourixe February 14, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    Just found your blog and looooove it. Very fond of squares and their multiple combinations. Surfing over old posts and felling in love with all you'va done so far.
    My only doubt… isn't it a disappearing 4 patch you are using here?

  28. lourixe February 14, 2013 at 3:48 pm #

    Forget my stupid question. Of course it's disappearing 9 patch.

    I just want to copy this exactly. It's so sweet. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I just started seeing this collection everywhere and am completely in love with it! today i find out whether the baby i'm growing is going to be boy or girl and as happy as i would be with either one, i'm so hoping for an excuse to buy a whole lot of this fabric!

  31. Erica February 14, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

    I love it! These aren't normally colors I work with, but for some reason I am totally in love with this collection :)

  32. Linda February 14, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

    I didn't care much for Posy till I saw your quilt! Love the border with it.

  33. Sophia1 February 14, 2013 at 7:21 pm #

    I bought a layer cake of this fabric soon after it came out to use with your Easy Bake pattern that I bought! I picked up a gingham fabric in pink to go along with it but will check out the other fabrics you coordinated with Posy.

  34. Carie February 14, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    It's gorgeous – I love the backing print especially.

  35. Tessa Marie February 14, 2013 at 8:46 pm #

    Such a sweet quilt. I love this fabric, too. The colors are retro and modern at the same time!

  36. Rhona February 14, 2013 at 9:28 pm #

    What a cute quilt. I have some fabric sitting waiting to be made into a quilt for my new granddaughter, this disappearing 9 patch may just be the pattern for it. I also love the backing fabric, so sweet!

  37. SewBlinkey.blogspot.com February 15, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    I heart this fabric too. Thank you for adding the other color options. I love this little quilt and the vacling is adorable.

  38. Claire Jain February 16, 2013 at 4:32 am #

    What a cutie! I love the fabric and that stripey binding, too.

  39. Suzette February 16, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    Such a pretty quilt. I love a striped binding. I'm always amazed at how a needle and thread can make most any fabric "go together".

    I love this quilt and the fabric it is beautiful
