Stacked Animals Quilt

Sorry for the terrible picture, it's so dark outside it almost feels like autumn has already arrived! I'm fairly happy with how this baby quilt I made for my friend's baby, turned out. I loved working with 'boy' fabrics which was new to me. There is some Laurie Wisbrun Urban Circus and Saffron Craig's Beetlebugs in this quilt and even some Ikea Hippo's from my stash; as well as some Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope fabrics.  For the back I also used some Ikea kiddy fabrics from my stash.

I'm still not very good at quilting, but these narrow straight lines all around the border turned out quite good. I still have to do a little mending here and there; after it was washed and dried some of the fabric near the binding (on the top of the quilt) had come loose. No idea how that happened!


  1. Your quilt is lovely and the quilting looks wonderful. Really like how the colors went so well together and that there are pops of bright every now and then.

  2. It turned out really cute! I have some Ikea fabrics, but I haven't washed them yet. Do they usually hold up ok?

  3. Oh, I like it. I love the look of "simple" piecing and lines. :)

  4. Look so pretty :) Great work!!
