Sew New to Me - Two Tone Baby Quilt

SNTM VQBee Quilt - Two Tone Baby Quilt

Yea, I actually have a finished quilt to show!
It was my month to send out fabrics in April for the Sew New to Me VQBee. I sent out two different Kona solids (Sky and Cloud) and asked for Denyse Schmidt "Drunk Love in a Cabin" inspired blocks.  Eveyone made such wonderful blocks, but the pictures of each individual block really were kind of blah. The colors just didn't show up well to show off the subtle difference in the fabrics, so I wasn't sure how it was all going to come together.

I absolutely adore the quilt now that it's sewn together and quilted! It really made a differenceto see the quilt top sewn together. I knew then that the subtle colors worked together; it makes for a quiet and peaceful quilt.

In the picture below, you can really see the pattern much better and how it looks in real life, to me. Many thanks to all of my Sew New to Me friends for all of the wonderful blocks!

For the quilting on this one, I wanted to try out some straight lines with a little bit variation and movement to them. It was simple and easy and went well with the design of the blocks.
So, thanks again to everyone for the wonderful blocks! I know the quilt will be enjoyed by my little guy for a long time!

This is really elegant. Sometimes the "Drunk Love" blocks can look a little too messy and I think this one successfully marries the freeform style with just plain style. Well done.
