Outdoorsy Birch Baby

by Julie Hirt

A friend of mine from high school recently contacted me and asked if I could make a patchwork quilt for her new son.  (So excited for her!)  She found some fabrics online that she loved and they were a variety of Birch organics (yes, she has great taste).

Using 6 half yards, 2 yards of camper fabric and 1 fat quarter of the orange bears (that print is so difficult to find),  I was able to make all of this:


The quilt is backed with Kona White and quilted in straight lines 1/4″ along each seam.


Here is the minkie backed camper blanket. I’d love one of these for myself, Birch fabrics are SO soft.


Two diaper covers.


Three bibs. I got to use my new KamSnaps!


Three burp cloths.


And a bear sack to hold the covers, bibs and cloths.


I literally have a handful of scraps left and that’s it.  Cheers to babies!
