Modern Baby Quilt for Baby Chahal

Well my cousin is expecting her first son, how exciting, and so of course I had to welcome him to our family with a new quilt!

I had originally found this fabric for a quilt I was going to make for Maiyo, and still will after I finish his Dr. Seuss quilt. You all might recognize the print as its the same theme from the baby quilt I made for Maiyo 2 years ago, and my first ever quilt!

I just absolutely love this animal theme and color design by Riley Blake and couldn't pass up making more memories with this wonderful flannel fabric.

For the back I had some Minky fabric that I bought on a whim and it matches perfectly.

I also decided to try out this new modern quilting technique where you quilt the squares individually and them piece them together. I have to say that the technique is handy since I don't have a nice machine with which to quilt, but probably not the best technique for quilting with bulky fabrics like minky...oh well, live and learn.

Fabrics Used:
Hooty Hoot Kangaroo by Riley Blake
Cozy Cotton Flannel in Chocolate from Robert Kaufman Fabrics
Robert Kaufman Minky Cuddle Dots
