I have been really loving different Japanese prints lately. They are just so cute and perfect to use as a design centerpiece for children’s quilts, especially for little boys. I picked up this great orange print recently and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I used long strips so the design wouldn’t be interrupted and coordinated with various geometric prints.
This quilt features fabric from Denyse Schmidt’s Katie Jump Rope, Lizzy House’s Red Letter Day, and a couple Monaluna Mingle prints. I just love the look of all the prints and colors together. I’m so sad a few of them are out of print.
The back of the quilt has several coordinating solids and a couple modern stripes featuring each fabric from the front. I secretly might like it more than the front!
The binding is another fabulous print from the Lizzy House Red Letter Day collection. Quilted in a free motion design, it is crinkly and soft. It measures 40″ x 51″.
And I added one of my new tags! This photo is from before I washed the quilt. It faded a bit in the wash, but my husband says he thought it still looked great so I’m going to keep putting them on the quilts.
The quilt is now listed in the shop! Sold!

I’m so excited to have finally broken down and ordered custom labels for my quilts. These come from the Etsy shop Mommie Made It. They are printed on organic cotton twill ribbon and were custom made based on the design I created. I was going back and forth between making a “fun” design or a “serious” design…clearly I choose the “fun” route!
The quality looks fantastic and I can’t wait to sew them on the 2 quilts I have upstairs which are awaiting their binding!
