Baby Boy Animal Quilt

One of these days I will become more consistent with my posting! But until then expect me every few weeks...erm... months.

I found this great image on Pinterest that led me to Sarah Goer Quilts and decided to recreate it with my own twist!

I decided to go with a 36" square size to make a great sized baby quilt.

I found this great fat quarter bundle of different animals in grey, teal and blue and ended up buying two so I could make this quilt. Of course I could have changed the sizing to keep the directional print consistent. Also, purchasing yardage may have been simpler given the prints. But it worked out!

I found a coordinating flannel to back the quilt. I splurged a bit and decided to bind the quilt with a white satin binding. I have actually not used satin binding before and I may not use it again! It was a bit of a pain but I'm quite pleased with the finished result! With this binding, the finished size is about 38" square.

This quilt quickly came together over one weekend (Friday evening to Sunday evening) so a very quick finish. Definitely plan to sew this up again!

Not sure where this little quilt will end up as I made it without a recipient in mind. Maybe I'll just post this one for sale on Facebook and see what happens....

  1. This is such a sweet quilt! I like that it's more than just squares, but still really simple. It lets the precious fabrics speak for themselves. I need to learn to do quicker things for babies. They always look so nice. :)
