HEDGEHOG BABY QUILT & TOWEL

Hi everyone! How is your Thursday going so far?

I've been busy taking lots of pictures of my new baby quilt! As I said in my last post I love the fabrics I picked for this one!

The blue dots, the blue chevron stripes and the thin stripes are from the fabric collection Happi by Dena Fishbein. I just love it! Could a fabric be more colorful and fun for a baby quilt? :) My favorite is the blue chevron one! 

The orange chevron is from the fabric collection Matilda by Alice Kennedy! I like how well this orange fabric looks with the others. 

As I included two fabrics with chevron stripes I decided It would be nice to use the blue dots fabric to sew a pair of chevron stripes with white background. I like white backgrounds because they enhance the beauty of the fabrics. For the rest of the quilt I've sewn fabric stripes of different widths. 

For the back I've chosen a beautiful aqua fabric with an small geometric pattern. I think it's perfect for this quilt because it compensates the colorful and bright top.

I've machine quilted this quilt making straight lines near the seams and also I have quilted it around the printed chevron stripes! It adds a wonderful texture!



For the binding I've also used the orange chevron fabric by Alice Kennedy. Who would say that aqua and orange would look so well together! Love mix and experiment with fabrics!

Binding is double for extra durability and I always hand stitch it on the back. It's one of my favorite steps because with each stitch you can see more about the finished quilt.

You may be thinking at this point why I named hedgehog this quilt, right? I always tend to buy more fabric than needed to make a quilt. My worst fear is running out fabric when making a quilt! So this time I thought I should do something else with these fabrics.

Don't ask me why but I ended up making a fabric hedgehog! I used yellow felt to add extra spikes! isn't it cute? I also decided to make a hooded baby towel and I hand sewn a patchwork applique on the hood, of curse it was a Hedgehog! :)












Let's take a last a look to the whole baby set :)

I have no kids yet but I enjoy making baby quilts anyway! It is so much fun!


You can find the pattern for making this quilt either on my Etsy shop or on Craftsy! The pattern also includes templates and detailed step by step instructions for making the matching stuffed fabric hedgehog! 

Have a great day!
