wistful winds

Adorable.  That's the first word that came to my mind when I first laid eyes on Shari of Doohickey Design fame's latest collection "Wistful Winds".  I mean, melt.your.heart adorable!  The sweet little girls?  Love.  The jelly-candy fresh colours?  Yum.

I whipped up this quick little crib/playmat quilt in whatever spare time I could find over the weekend, which wasn't much.  So I pulled off this project off with a few handfuls of squares & rectangles, and then at the last minute I threw in the white stripes between each column.  Love how that white makes everything just pop.

In case you're inspired to make something similar, cut sizes are:

  • 2.5" squares
  • 2.5 x 4.5" rectangles
  • 1" strips

This quilt is so easy!  Standard cuts, no matching seams, nothing fussy at all.  I was working with Long Quarters, which are 9" x WOF (rather than Fat Quarters) so I made probably THE scrappiest binding EVER!  Love it. :)
