A quilt for baby A

Back in January, my friend Brenda announced a quilt-along she was hosting on her blog.  With several baby quilts on my to-make list, I was eager to join in.

Bust Yo Scraps!

While she billed the quilt-along as a scrap-buster, I chose to use Sarah Jane's "Rocket Launch Club" print in cream as the "background" fabric, with solid colors matched from that print for the surrounding half-square triangles and flying geese. 

The solids I used were Free Spirit Solids in Red and Saffron, Moda Bella Solids in Robins Egg, and Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Blue Jay and Charcoal.

I backed the quilt in Just Wing It! by Momo for Moda in Light Turquoise, and the binding is Eliza Stripe from Sis Boom Basics by Jennifer Paganelli for Free Spirit.

I quilted it using straight lines in a crisscross pattern similar to here and here.

This quilt soon to be on its way to a dear friend who recently had a baby boy.

Now I'm linking up to Brenda's blog with all the other completed QAL quilts.  Be sure to check them out, there are some really great ones!
