Strawberry Biscuit Blog Hop: Pinwheel Baby Quilt

strawberry_biscuit_blog_hop_graphicToday is my stop on the Strawberry Biscuit blog hop and I am so glad that you’ve stopped by to see what I’ve made. Strawberry Biscuit is the latest released fabric collection by the ever-so-sweet and very talented designer Elea Lutz for Penny Rose Fabrics. Elea has a fantastic sense of color and her designs bring me back to my childhood and all the wonderful handmade items my grandmother would sew. This collection is full of vintage inspired prints using strawberries, petite florals, large scale florals, poodles, birdies, kittens, bears, turtles and more. I love using Elea’s designs for baby or toddler items  so I have made a pinwheel baby quilt with 3″ half square triangle blocks.SB_Pinwheel_OverChair_BPI paired the Strawberry Biscuit prints with coordinating pink Swiss Dots by Riley Blake Designs. I love Swiss Dots fabric and use it often in place of a solid fabric for added interest and sweetness.SB_Pinwheel_FrDrape_BPSB_Pinwheel_Folded_Top_BPFor the back, I couldn’t resist using super soft white minky which I think is perfect for a baby quilt. I quilted it very simply by mimicking the horizontal and vertical seams. And for the first time ever, I used one of the cheater prints from the collection to make an easy scrappy binding.SB_Pinwheel_FB_Hang_BP_revSB_Pinwheel_FB_Hang_Closeup_BPSB_Pinwheel_TagCloseup_BPSB_Pinwheel_Binding_BPThank you for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the other talented ladies participating in the blog hop.
