I feel like I say "finally!" a lot around here. :)
I had the top finished over a year ago... oops.
Since we didn't peek at little miss Scarlet's gender while she was baking, I had made a gender neutral quilt that I intended to take with us to the hospital (I had this dream of greeting baby #2 with skin, and then a homemade quilt -- but labor came on and progressed so quickly that there wasn't even a camera in the room with us when she was born, let alone a quilt). ;)
To make this quilt, I cut sixty degree triangles from 4 1/2" strips using this stack of fabric. My friend Lindsey made the original inspiration quilt for me, and I also loved Adrianne's little baby mish mash quilt.
And I really do think it works for either a baby boy or girl... which is saying a lot, because generally, I'm not impressed by gender neutral attempts, and think they look either boy or girl.
For the back, I used a big chunk of Tula Pink's Turtle Bay print from Prince Charming in the aqua color. I had originally intended to use the cream one, but couldn't bring myself to part with it once I decided I would probably be trying to sell this quilt. I finished off the side with the pastry stripe in the little folks voile.
I love that Turtle Bay print, and love how the voile looks next to it.
It's quilted with straight lines, 1/4" ish away from the vertical seams in both directions.
I had started to do the binding in the "saffron" voile, but changed my mind, and decided it needed to be cream instead. I think they look beautiful together.
I absolutely love this quilt, and think it turned out so beautifully, but because I have too many new fabric collections I'm eyeing, and because Scarlet's room is going ultra-girley, I've listed this quilt for sale. If you know someone looking for a gender neutral quilt, you can send 'em my way. :)
