Wednesday WiP - Children at Play

I've been slowly but surely working on my bottled rainbows quilt top.  Last night I spent some time going through my scraps looking for fabric to match my berry and violet colors.  I love sorting through my scraps and petting all my fabric. It takes me way longer than necessary because I have to oooh and aaah over all the lovely fabric I forgot I have. ha!


I am finishing up a baby girl quilt using the gorgeous Children at Play fabric by Sarah Jane studios.  Oh how I love each and every fabric in that line, so girly girl and precious.  My original idea was to take the "parade" fabric and build a quilt on top of it.  I finished up the top section of the quilt last night and when I started looking at how it would turn out when I added the parade on the bottom I just didn't like it.  Here's the top section...

and here's the top section with the parade scene laid under it, obviously it's not ironed or attached yet.  I don't think I am going to add the parade, it just looks out of place there and the top is 40" x 40" so it's already a generous baby quilt size.


Now I'm back to the drawing board to whip up a new design that lets the parade scene be the star of the show.  Wish me luck!

The quilt is beautiful. I think the parade scene would be great framed or stretched over a canvas.

Adorable crib quilt, Mitzi. Your choice of fabrics makes it look delicate yet fun. Lucky baby!
best, nadia

I think you could use the parade scene on the back surrounded by other stripes of fabric. Then your quilt would be double sided :)

Oh it's so cute! Why don't you make the parade be the star of the back of the quilt? It's such a fantastic piece!
Either way, that quilt is darling!
