City Weekend Baby Quilt

by Julie Hirt

I am SO in love love love with these fabrics.   It’s the City Weekend line by Liesl Gibson for Oliver + S for Moda (that’s a mouthful).

I’m still working on the Make Life quilts for Tori and Liz, but when this fabric came in the mail on Friday…  I had to make something with it.  Immediately. It’s probably my favorite fabric ever and I can’t wait for yardage to become available this fall. I may try to make a duvet or some skirts and shirts for the girls. Or just buy a bunch of fabric to admire!

Since I only ordered one charm pack I had limited options for a quilt. I decided to make a baby quilt using the tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew! for the Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!   This makes my 4th finished quilt.

I used Kona Ash for the edging, white for the sashing and a light aqua cotton for the back. The remaining charms were pieced together for a little strip along the back.

Machine quilted using free-motion in a stipple pattern.  It’s freshly laundered – heavy on the fabric softener and is all nice and crinkly.

I seriously can’t get enough of this fabric!

Please ignore the grass! Our lawn has lost the battle against the heat wave we’ve been having this summer.
