Finish It Up Friday ~ Tuppence Baby Quilt

This finish was as quick as I expected. I liked the design, but am underwhelmed by the fabric choices.

It seems that when working with a charm pack, I feel committed to using every piece and not adding any to it. This is not always the best course of action.

I should have eliminated some of the lighter squares and added more navy bits from my stash for better contrast. It’s okay, but it could have been better. Live and learn.

It finished at about 46 by 54. I used a pantograph from Willow Leaf Studio called Ink Blot. The backing is from the “way back stash.”

I would try this idea again. It was quick and easy, but I’d spend more time on fabric choices.

Have a great day!

    It is still cute, and useful for donation.

    I love this quilt–the pattern, the colors, the subtle contrast, and especially that you added sashing with the small cornerstones. I know you’re not quite satisfied with the colors but really, the only time we look at a whole quilt is just after we make it or if it’s laying out on a bed. This quilt, though, will be snuggled around a baby or wrapped around a toddler. Neither baby or mom will be evaluating the colors or the placement. They’ll just be thrilled to have such a wonderful quilt.
