Well this turned out nicely!
It’s a very simple design: there are two complementary Beatrix Potter fabrics for the large squares (6 1/2″), and the nine patches are made up of four matching fabrics (2 1/2″ squares). Each nine patch block is identical, and they are lined up to create blue diagonals, adding some interest to the quilt, but keeping the overall effect serene.
I chose two free-motion quilting motifs, wavy lines for the plain blocks and echoing swirls for the nine patches.
It took some thought to decide on the binding, but I went with this sweet off-white.
Baby quilts are one of my life missions, and I look forward to welcoming someone into the world with this one.
