The quilt top is nearly complete (I just need to add the white border). The main print used is Michael Miller's Giraffe Garden in grey. I saw this fabric months ago & just couldn't make up mind it if was a print I truly loved. Plus, I wasn't sure if I wanted to make a neutral quilt for the baby now or wait until we find out gender at birth & then make a quilt. I finally decided to buy the fabric only to realize it was no longer available at Fabricworm... or most other online shops. Luckily I was able to find just enough of it on Etsy to make this quilt! And despite the colors being a little out of my comfort zone (which actually look better in real life than they do in these photos), I really love how this quilt is turning out!
The accent fabrics are all prints I found locally. I will be using cotton batting & backing the quilt with Michael Miller's Huevos in gray (once it arrives in the mail). I also plan to use the scrap accent fabric to make my own bias binding.
As for the quilting... I'm not 100% sure what I will do yet for this. I think just straight line quilting in a grid following the boxes, sashing & borders (like HERE) or going diagonal through the squares (like HERE) would look nice. I also love the look of free motion (like HERE), but have yet to try it. What do you think would look best?
