I have a baby nephew on the way very soon so I need to get on and make a baby quilt. I saw glimpses of Timber and Leaf by Sara Watts a few months back and knew I had to have it. I ordered a selection from Eternal Maker and some 'Seaside' October Afternoon by Riley Blake which goes with it perfectly.
Beautiful colours and prints
Here is my plan, based on a bear paw quilt block, very simple and easy- Baby Bear Quilt. The fabrics are doing the work in this quilt so I wanted plenty of space for the picture designs. The large 12" squares will be alternating Fawn in birch grey/ bear brush beat in taupe prints- I have a half yard of each. I am using a selection of FQs for the half square triangles, the plaid for the binding- that may change, and a mix of the yellows for the crisscrossing centre strip and some quilting plans for those strips too.
I'll be posting all the details online as I make it. I have a heavy workload at the moment so I can't guarantee exactly when but this needs to get made in the next month so that gives me a push to get going! I will be including cutting details for using a Sizzix Big Shot as well as standard half square triangles. I had this sent to me before Christmas for a project and you can see from the cutting pads, it has been in constant use. The half square triangle dies are a joy to use and I went and bought a 2.5" square die immediately for sorting scraps.
Here are the other posts so you can cut, sew, quilt and bind your Baby Bear Paw Quilt.
