This modern baby quilt was made for Holden before his arrival.  I have finally finished a tutorial on it so here you go…

I started with 11 different fabrics in bright and fun colors and scales.  Cutting them into 2.5”, 3.5” and 5.5” wide strips.  Random is the key to this quilt.  No order, no direction, no wrong way!

Sew together

Cut into 6” wide panels. Flip, sew, flip sew…

Cut 6” sashing from another fabric

Quilt as desired.  I had it quilted f a local quilt shop with using variegated thread and an adorable star pattern.

Bind your quilt with yet another fabric!
