My friends Lyndsay and Eric recently welcomed their first child, and in the months leading up to the due date, my group of friends hosted the sweetest baby shower. I wasn’t a part of the party planning, so I decided to use the time to create a baby quilt. And luckily, when this idea came to me, 1canoe2 announced a sale on its fabric.
I am a big fan of 1canoe2. For several months, I participated in its greeting card subscription, and I’m pretty much obsessed with its new collection of fabric bags. But with this quilt, it was the first time I purchased 1canoe2 fabric.
Because its simple and easy, I decided to make the quilt using half triangles. I love this pattern because there are so many ways that you can arrange the different fabrics.
It’s funny. Now that I am looking back through the pictures, I actually prefer the option above—with the light blue in the center. But I must have known deep down that they were going to have a girl. (The gender was surprise.) The final version has the link pink fabric in the center.
I love it when you find the perfect fabric for the back of the quilt, and I feel like I hit the jackpot with this teal moth pattern.
