Sunday Afternoon Sewing

Ever since I saw Rita Red Pepper Quilts beautiful quilt made with Riley Blake's Seaside collection I have wanted to make my version. Yesterday I started pulling fabrics and chopping them into 4.5" squares and today I have a finished quilt top.

I haven't made a baby sized quilt in a very long time. I forgot how quick they come together. This will be a gift for my cousin's newborn son (they live in Slovakia). The playful nature of the fabrics and the bright colors combined with some basics are perfect for a baby boy. I think a quick cross-hatch quilting job and a spotty binding and I can have this one finished by the end of the week. The baby was born in July so I am not too late with the gift.
