Tada! I present to you: the baby's new quilt. With some help from my Facebook peeps I decided on a herringbone quilt design, and I love how it turned out! I saw the idea here, and there is a pattern for it, but as usual, I thoroughly winged it. I have only followed a quilt pattern....er pretty much never...I'm a rebel what can I say? (the lamest rebel in the history of rebels, but oh well)
The fabric is all from the Mod Basics organic line, from my sponsor Fabricworm. It is so, so soft. Love the colors too, they were perfect for the nursery!
I backed it in the Birdie Spokes in Coral, and as you can tell, I stink at basting together quilt layers. I'm hoping a good wash will hide some of the worst parts. Again with the rebel quilter tendencies...I just didn't want to fix it. (ok so maybe it's more lazy pregnant lady tendencies....)
So I did use a herringbone tutorial-this one is great! I cut my pieces at a bit more of an angle than she did, and threw in some white sashing, but otherwise followed the tutorial pretty closely.
Thanks to Rory for helping me take pictures!
