It is time to show you my 2nd Modern Batik Challenge baby quilt. I will be intereted to know which of the quilts you like the best!
26″ x 34″ Baby Quilt
This is the same fun bundle of the Paisley Dot Brights collection that I used for the 1st Modern Batik Challenge baby quilt that I made after watching the video called Embers Quilt by Rob from Man Sewing.
Here is a photo showing both quilts, the newest one reminds me of a bargello quilt. The first baby quilt measured 26″ x 32″. For our Island Batik Ambassador challenge this month we were to create a crib quilt, mine are a little small but will work.
I always have the links to all of the other Island Batik Ambassadors so you can check out the fun batik projects they are always working on.
The colors are so vibrant in this batik collection and I really had fun working with them. It is amazing what you can create with 2½” strips of fabrics.
When I made the first Modern Batik Challenge Baby Quilt I showed the steps I followed from Rob’s video tutorial using a 2½” strip set and I think the bright red batik combined with the pink batik really makes the whole quilt rows pop. In my last quilt I added additional pink batik which really gives it a feminine look.
These are the rows that I made and added the cream batik borders to. I only used 2 of them for the first quilt so I still had 2 left for a different look.
I decided to add a 2½” red batik strip between the 2 leftover rows. Isn’t it neat to see how different both quilts are?
I had some leftover flannel that I thought would look perfect on the back of this quilt. I used a 80/20 poly/cotton batting and did a fairly large meandering free motion on the top of the quilt. I used a 8/12 needle in my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine.
It is so much fun to be able to take pictures outside. We have finally been getting some rain, in fact the storm last night also had a lot of wind and soaked our outside rug. The rain actually hit the windows even with the roof over the deck!
There is more rain on the way, look at those dark clouds! When the rain stops I’ll have to take pictures of the 4th of July banners I have out on the deck.
Now that you’ve seen both quilts, which one do you like the best? I hope you have enjoyed my 2nd Modern Batik Challenge Baby Quilt.
Here is the video for the Embers Quilt made by Rob from Man Sewing, enjoy!
