Half a Happy Baby Quilt
I started without a real plan, I only bought 4 fat quarters of Laurie Wishbrun's Urban Circus (and ended up only using 3 of them) and a bright orange Kona Solid. In the end I decided on doing a stacked coins quilt and pulled fabrics from my stash that went well with the Urban Circus colours.
I was glad to be able to use the Ikea Hippo fabric in this quilt. I once made curtains for Luna with that fabric and still have A LOT of it left! I will probably use some hippos for the backing as well. ;) Then there are some fabrics to soften to brightness, like the grey and white dot and the blue 'quilters linen' (love that fabric). I added some cute Saffron Craig Beetle Bugs in the mix as well. No idea where that Star fabric came from! And because I was missing some darker/medium blue tones I had to throw in some of my precious Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope as well. The orange solid as sashing was a bit too bright so luckily I had some white Kona solid hiding in my stash too. I'm pretty chuffed with the result so far! :)
