Eden's easy quilt

by Jill Hornby
(Washington )

I finally decided to make a quilt for my baby when I was four days overdue. I knew I needed something that would be quick and easy to make (because we all know how impossible it is to get stuff done after the baby is born.)

The colors were inspired by the vintage sheet I used for the back. I used a white piece of fabric for the front, about 3 by 3.5 ft. I laid it out and cut 9 strips horizontally. I cut the strips freehand so that they were wavy and uneven. Then I cut one square out of each strip, and used it as a pattern for the colorful blocks.

To make the blocks I literally just hacked off pieces of fabric with my scissors and sewed them together until I got the look I liked. I created the binding by sewing together scraps left over from the blocks. Then I machine quilted it with horizontal stripes.

I wanted the quilt to look fresh and summery for my summer baby. I like that it looks girly without using pastels!
