For Baby

When I wanted to make a baby quilt for a family friend recently, and I heard her primary nursery color was gray, I immediately thought back to Svetlana/s.o.t.a.k. handmade's Modern Coins quilt I had saved in my Baby Quilt Ideas pin board ages ago. My version was different, but still (I think) with the same flavor, and measured 40" x 44".

For the backing, I chose Dear Stella Pine Grove in Multi. Actually, I chose the backing first, and Kristina at Fabric Bubb was kind enough to color-match for me, and helped me select Kona White and Iron for the front.

Quilting was an uneven grid, which is always fun. The little quilt was gifted to the mama-to-be over the weekend, so all the secret sewing of late has been revealed. yay!


  1. Very sweet! I love starting with a backing print and using it as inspiration for the front. :)

  2. Beautiful clean lines. Blankets for little ones are so appreciated!

  3. What a lovely gift! I love coin quilts.

  4. Minimalistic but also cute with that backing. Lovely combination!
