Herringbone Baby {a finished quilt!}


Yay, I did it!  I finished this super fun to piece baby quilt and I have to tell you that I am so in love with it.  The colors are so soft and just seem snugly before you even touch the quilt!

Herringbone front

The fabric used in this quilt is Willow by Riley Blake.  I just love how "quiet" it is and yet still so beautiful.  It was pieced and quilted entirely with Aurifil 50wt thread #2021 (ivory).

The inspiration for this quilt design came from this fabric in the Willow line.  Isn't it just the best herringbone fabric?

I didn't have a piece large enough for the back, so I pieced two fabrics together into stripes and think it turned out pretty cute.

The binding is another print from the Willow line and I think it sets it off nicely.  I also just love the perfect stitches I get with the Aurifil thread.  I really need to stock up on more colors of this amazing stuff!

Now I will be off to deliver this to the soon to be Mommy tomorrow!
