Isaac's Quilt

Isaac’s Quilt

About time I made another quilt… and shared it!

This quilt was made for my little buddy Isaac. His Dad has been a work colleague and friend for nearly 10 years, he’s a big fan of natural fibers and loves the beach and gardening, which inspired the colours and prints.

When I heard last year that a bubba was on the way I knew I had to make a quilt. I love plus blocks for baby quilts and tried sketching a few options before settling on this one and working out the dimensions. The quilt finishes at 40″ square with each block at 10″ square.

The fabrics, batting and even the thread are all 100% cotton. The blue and green are cross weaves that have a great shimmer from various angles. The sandy yellow has a grey metallic print with a botanical theme, similar to the multi colour on white. All of the fabrics and cotton batting were purchased from Spotlight.

I originally intended to create a crosshatch grid with the quilting but after completing the diagonal lines in one direction it was just so lovely and soft so I decided to leave it at that. I used my favourite Aurifil 50wt  cotton thread in a medium grey (#1158) that sunk in and blended beautifully.

The binding was done by machine to withstand all the washing and dragging that baby quilts are subjected to, I’ve finally figured out just the right way to do it neatly, cutting the strips at 2 1/4″ and sewn to the back before folding over to the front and top stitching. The backing used left over strips from the front.

A little label to finish up and it’s now been gifted to Isaac with instructions to use it for picnics, cubbys, dragging around, and having lots of fun.
