Two Tone Modern Baby Quilt

I posted this quilt I made for a family friend for Christmas a few weeks ago...

I had some left over blocks and I was playing with them the other day. I figured out a layout and decided to make two other quilts with them. The one, which is still laying out on my sewing room floor will be a wall hanging and this baby boy quilt...

Remember, the quilt I made was for our male friend... so I was thinking about that when I was designing the quilt. I went with a color scheme which I don't normally use (but I ended up really liking it!). When I make a quilt for a baby boy, I usually go for more pastel blues and greens or crisp red and blue. This one is a bit different. I am not very confident about my machine quilting skills, but I came up with a design I can manage and that is unique too.

Because the quilt top has darker matte colors, I chose crisp white & gray houndstooth fabric as a backing and added more colors with bias tape. Hoping to make the quilt a bit more playful and lively.

This was an unplanned project but I am pretty happy with the result. I am working on several quilt projects right now, I can't wait to share the others soon!


  1. Your quilting is lovely. The pattern gives the quilt a lot of dimension. Great finish!

  2. Sachiko, I love the pattern. Very nice.

  3. love your quilts, can't wait to see the next ones either!

  4. Love this color combo, not babyish but absolutely fitting for a little boy. Beach colors, could be used in a variety of ways as he grows.

  5. love love love the blue quilt!!! makes me want to get more into quilting!

  7. That turned out awesome! I love the back, but I think the binding is my favorite. You did a great job on the quilting!
