Scattered Flowers Postage Stamp Baby Quilt

Subtitled:  Spring Has Arrived Here....Turned Out it Was Only a Quilt

I've been piecing this baby quilt out of leftover fabrics from the grandmother's flower garden quilt I'm working on.  All the squares that don't have 6 matching pieces for flower petals or are in the same pale green that my background colours are for that quilt got tossed in a big ziploc and emerged as this baby quilt.  (Plus some yardage of a blue flowered print from 3 Sisters Shangri-la)

Since I was finishing this quilt during (another) snowstorm (the kind, incidentally, we have been getting about every few days since October 26, 2013.....) It is my only Spring. I will hold it, I will hug it, and I will love it. And then, if Spring every comes here for real, I will sell it in my Etsy shop :)

Pieced in Aurifil 50 wt in white and quilted in ivory. The backing is a textured solid in Tapioca from Pink Castle Fabric (not sure of the manufacturer) and the binding is from 3 Sister's line Paris Flea Market. Size is 36.5" by 43.5".   Did you know Spring could be so soft and crinkle-icious?!

  4. I like the postage stamp design and how you used straight line diagonal lattice style quilting. The pictures make it look very soft. Nice finish with that pink binding too. Scraps rule!
