Scrappy Bear Paw Baby Quilt

Tuesday, January 30, 2024

Happy Tuesday! Today I have a little quilt finish to share!

This quilt ended up being a few years in the making, on accident! At the time I started it, I was working on building up my stash of baby quilts for gifting. I pulled fabrics around the adorable animal print from Lore by Leah Duncan*, which is one of my favorites of hers. I don't use a lot of this royal blue color, so that was a fun challenge.

I used my Scrappy Bear Paw Baby Quilt Tutorial for this quilt. It had been a while since I made one, and I liked the idea of using the paws as a place to showcase a special print.

I picked fabrics and pieced the quilt top back in Spring 2022, but then in just sat folded up in the sewing room. Fast forward to late this last Summer (2023) and I decided it was time to finish it! Baby P was here and I realized just how handy it was to have lots of little quilts. I kept the quilting super simple with my signature wavy quilting.

For the backing I used one of my prints from Geometric Bliss*! I always thought this print made good backings. And it's a relatively good match for the front of the quilt.

The binding is another print from Geometric Bliss*. Probably my most used print from that collection to be honest! I love a yellowy green!

This quilt has gotten so much use the last few months! It's the perfect size to cover a play mat we use upstairs. Keeps me from having to wash the cover for that every day. It's been a relief to see how well my quilts have held up to really frequent washings. Makes me feel like they're going to last a long time, which is good. Anyways, this was a fun one to make and nice to use up a bunch of stash and a long kept print!
