A Woodland Herringbone Quilt : :

During the Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour I finished and sold two different quilts, something I really want/need to do more often! Both of these quilts were sadly made, completed, and picked up during a stretch of nasty weather days preventing me from taking the kind of photos I love to share of my quilts here. One of those quilts was a baby boy themed quilt that was ordered to match a green & gray nursery. As I pulled fabrics from my stash I couldn't resist adding in some cool blues, aqua, navy, & cream. The fabric prints, right away, took on a woodland theme that was just perfect for this expecting couple. While I don't have photos of the full quilt to share today, these colors & prints together were so lovely and inspiring that I want to share what photos I do have, for those of you looking to make something for baby boy and because I would love to make this quilt again myself!

For Woodland Herringbone Quilt Making

The hefty stack above includes Art Gallery Pure Element solids + Round Elements with prints from Bonnie's Hello, Bear + Forest Floor, April's Bound fabrics, and a few from Indian Summer by Sarah Watson. These fabrics together tell a sweet story of the woodland creatures & landscape unique to the whimsical forest world. I love the way it turned out!

Woodland Herringbone Quilt

Once again I used the Herringbone QAYG pattern I teach in my Craftsy class, Quick Quilt As You Go! I love making this quilt and changing it up just a little each time I make a new one. For this quilt I made eight panels running vertical, instead of horizontal. It came together so super quick, this pattern is just perfect for last minute quilt-gift-giving! To add my quilt backing, I used an Aurifil 50wt in Dark Navy from my Bohemian Garden thread collection. I love using a visible thread color here!

Bound in Summit Twilight

For both the binding and backing, I used my most favorite Hello, Bear print ~ Summit in Twilight. I see rolling hills of modern geometric shapes and I love it! I even made an extra large roll of this binding to finish the pillows I hope to make with the scraps leftover from this quilt project!

I hope you like this quilt as much as I do! Hopefully I'll find the time to make a second one to photograph & offer in my Etsy shop soon. I'm considering making this one a made-to-order quilt for my Etsy, it's so perfect for a baby boy!

I wish you all a great start to your week! In case you missed it, be sure to check out the first peek of my upcoming Spring 2016 collection, Nightfall, on the AGF Instagram page!
