Oh Deer Modern Baby Quilt

When I was making my On a "Jelly" Roll quilt, I wound up with some very fun and colorful left over strips and scraps that were begging me to play with.  I have never make a log cabin quilt so I decided that I would turn all of the fun 2.5" strips into a modern version of log cabin blocks.  I made 4 blocks larger and larger until I ran out of fabric which was about 15" square.  The blocks were so fun and quick to make.

I played around with the layout and decided on a little white sashing to make sure that the blocks stood out and added a thin border with some of the deer prints because the deer are so darn cute. I chose to quilt using a meandering pattern because with all of the colors and patterns going on I thought that a simpler quilting pattern might look better.


I found a wonderful 100% organic cotton print from the Pop Posies Collection by Nancy Mims for Robert Kaufman on a sale at Pink Castle Fabrics for the backing and I used my usual Warm & Natural batting.

I have the quilt listed here in my etsy shop.  Thanks for looking!

  2. Darling! What a sweet baby quilt, Cheryl and the perfect way to use those remainders from the jelly roll! Love the binding and backing fabric choices, too.
