Bohemian Baby

bohemian baby

A couple of weeks ago, Quilt Home had a great sale on Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks. After receiving some to make the empire dress, I couldn’t resist buying more. I thought it would be the perfect fabric for a baby blanket – and I happen to know a baby girl that will be born soon! This blanket is inspired by this quilt I saw on Flickr recently. I loved how the window pane was incorporated. I meant to use more yellow on my quilt, but in my ordering frenzy I guess I forgot to buy some.

Each square is 6.5″. The back is Anna Maria Horner’s Folksy Flannel. It is unbelievably soft. This blanket is so cozy, I am seriously considering making a big one for myself!

I quilted straight lines in the ditch. I also did curved corners for the first time. They don’t lay perfectly flat (is that normal?) But I think they look cute for a baby blanket. This quilt measures 34″ x 40″.

And just for fun, here are more pictures of my bulbs coming up! These are part of a wildflower mix I planted last fall in our back yard by the woods. So exciting. 🙂

    Looks good. I keep hearing how soft Anna Maria’s flannel is. I’m going to have to get some.

    Did you use bias-cut binding for the curves? I haven’t tried curved edges yet myself, but hear bias binding is the way to go.

      Thank you! You know, I was out of batting and on a tight deadline, so I used some white flannel I had for the batting. It worked great! Usually I like Request Loft Dream Cotton batting though.
