Modern Solids Baby Boy Quilt

Ah, Kona Solids, what would my fabric stash be without you?  Prints are great, but I am loving solids.  You can really create something that is bold and very simple, yet has a great effect.

I enjoyed making the bar graph quilts previously and had some of the green, blue, yellow, and orange left over.  I knew I wanted to make another baby boy quilt, but wasn’t sure what I was going do.  There was some fabric in my stash that I could have used, but it wasn’t the correct one.

On a Friday afternoon I went to Crimson Tate as I was out running errands.  Not that I needed more fabric, I just needed inspiration that day.  While looking over her wonderful fabric selection I found this.  Not what I would normally gravitate towards, but it would work with a the solids I had stashed away at home.

The design came to me while standing in the store.  Add gray with my solids and this may work for the back.  I rushed off to the house to get to work.  I had plenty of projects already started, but one more wouldn’t hurt.

I finished this week after a fight with myself about the binding.  I REALLY wanted to do brown originally.  Had it cut and ready to add and paniced.  It did not look right.  Back to my stash of solids and I found a wonderful green.  Much better.

The record breaking crowd at the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild meeting got to see a sneak peek off the design wall with the quilting.

Here is the completed quilt, ready for a new home.
Love the way it turned out what can be created when you just play.
