I designed the quilt based on the fabrics I had in-stash, limited by only having 1 yard of each (except the striped back). Quilting is not really a thing in Poland, and the little quilting fabric there is, is all imported from the USA anyway, and so with the price jack-up it’s just as cost-efficient to buy it on the internet and pay for the shipping.
It’s crib-sized, 40×53 inches. Of course a blanket this size and thickness is not appropriate for a baby to sleep with (it should probably be a wall-hanging or decoration while he’s an infant) until the baby is a toddler, but it is big enough for the little guy to grow into and sleep with for several years. It’s also 100% cotton (front, back, batting, and thread), so in case of a fire, it will burn rather than melt. (I learned about child-safe pajamas and blankets when I worked at the fabric store and wondered out loud why most of the bolts say “Not intended for children’s sleepwear.” Trust them. Melting fabric is a nightmare.)
What will become of this little quilt? I don’t know yet. Hopefully it will go to some cute little baby 🙂 Do you have a cute little baby in search of a quilt?
