baby quilt and matching cushion covers

This week I would like to show you a colourful baby quilt and matching cushion covers. The pattern is Campfire Glow Quilt by Meghan from Then Came June.

I really liked the simplicity of the pattern. A super combination of nine patch blocks and sawtooth star blocks. How come I didn’t get this idea?

The nine patch blocks are strip pieced and are quick to make. As I had some “leftover” blocks, I made two matching cushion covers.

All three pieces were fun to make. Only working with these colours, summer comes into the house! All fabrics are Robert Kaufman from the collection Kona Solids.

I have used the following Kona Solids : Medium Pink with Ash Grey, Bright Pink with Pewter Grey, Kumquat Orange with Grellow Yellow.

Backing fabric is a duvet cover from IKEA. Used on both the quilt and cushion covers. The cushion covers have an envelope closure with a double layer of fabric : the flower pattern on top and calico on the interior.

I have quilted all three pieces in straight lines with the walking foot. The cushion covers only in one diagonal direction with dense stitching. And the baby quilt has stitches in both diagonal directions, but is not as dense as the cushion covers.

For quilting, I have used a stitch length of 4 mm. Quilting thread for the cushion covers is Superior Threads King Tut 40/3 cotton in color 962 – a grey variegated thread. The quilting thread for the baby quilt is my favourite from Amann Group Mettler Silk Finish Cotton in 40 weight and color 0331 light grey.

For the binding I have selected the Kona Solid in Bright Pink. It is such a happy and bright color!
