Another Baby Quilt

I have made this pattern before, in a pink and white colorway seen here. This time around I was inspired by the Moda fabric line "High Street". There were some add-ins from my stash from Riley Blake, Zen Chic, and other lines. I am deliberating about the green polka dot fabric on the left. There is a one inch border and then an outer border of the soft gray that is the background fabric. The green fabric is from the "High Street" line and coordinates with the other fabrics, although from this photo it's not really apparent. Some of the florals have tiny amounts of the green in them, but I am not sure if there is enough for it to be recognizable. I will take it to breakfast tomorrow morning and get the opinion of the other quilters at the table.

Over the weekend our guild hosted a quilt retreat. I pieced these blocks, plus part of a Christmas bargello table runner and some blocks ala Victoria Findlay Wolfe's "15 Minutes of Play." When there is something to show from this effort, I will post photos.


  1. the green border really jumped out at me but to see the real quilt as you say it might not be so loud if the other greens surface, will wait to see what you decide to do.

    1. Margaret, thanks for your input. I had the same reaction. It looked so nice piled up at the counter in the quilt shop with all the others in the fabric line. Maybe I just wanted some relief from all the girly florals? I think I will not use it, but have to find something else if that is the case.

  2. How about a border in orange???

  3. I have nixed the green and thinking about orange for the little border.
