We seem to be in a baby-quilt mood lately, and this little wonder from Kate of See Kate Sew is a true beauty! For this gorgeously soft project Kate has put together both a tutorial for us and a pattern. And because it's based on simple triangles, this quilt is an excellent project for beginner quilters! More from Kate:
"I’ve been wanting to make a triangle quilt forever, so having a new baby girl to sew for became my perfect excuse to get it done. It took me a few weeks, as quilts usually do. I did it little by little, but it was a really simple process. The triangles are a decent size, so it doesn’t take forever and it’s simple quilting. So, if you’ve never made a quilt before, this could be a great project for you! (And if you have quilted, it’s still a fun project!)
"Since this is my first girl, I’m not sick of pink. I don’t LOVE overly pink things, but I thought using stark black and white also would give it a good balance. Feminine but not too girly. I love how it turned out. The ombre effect with light pink, pink and peach is just what I was going for! I had to go to two fabric stores to get the colors just right.
"I also used black and white because babies love contrast! I remember Cohen staring at my black and white polka dot shirt in awe when he was a newborn, so I backed this quilt with black and white polka dots and used a black and white stripe as one of the triangle prints."
